Valentine’s Banner 2


I decided it was time to move forward from the winter into something fun.  I love banners, but have never really used them in my own home. And since I put create on my Winter Blue’s list, I decided to put another coping skill into play.  After I finished this project, I found I not only liked how it looked, but it felt good.  It feels good to create!

I know there is a rule about 3s, so I made three.

Here is the before picture:

I gathered some items I had around the house and purchased a few things: ribbon, paper and buttons.  As you can seen in the materials, I didn’t really know what I was going to use, so I just grabbed what I had, then figured it out along the way!

I decided to make one banner out of burlap I had left over from Christmas.  The last two banners are made out of paper.  I cut them into triangles and hearts.

Banner 1, I cut out the burlap and hot glued the hearts and LOVE lettering on.  I also hot glued the ribbon to the back.

Banner 2, I cut the paper into triangles, and added some buttons and felt hearts I found at the scrapbook store.  I punched holes in the paper and put them together with ribbon.

Banner 3, I cut the paper into hearts (I don’t have a heart paper punch, so it took some time…) and strung them together with yarn.  Since this paper was patterned, I didn’t add any buttons.

Here is the picture with only one banner.

Then I added the other two.  I can see why three is better!

It made it worthwhile when my girls turn out the lights except the one over the banners and dance around singing:  “Valentine’s Day is about LOVE.  Valentine’s Day is about LOVE…”

Happy crafting!
