Hey there, Laura here today with a fun Valentine’s Day banner project for you. I love to make banners! I have one for every holiday and season. I have several places in my home where I hang them up to decorate – on my bookshelf, my pallet shelves, and above the window. If I had a fireplace, I am sure I would have a banner on the mantel as well! The banner punch board is one of my favorite tools because you can put together a banner quickly and easily.
To create this Valentine’s Day banner, I started by making some red wire hearts using the Happy Jig. I used the size of the hearts to determine the size of my banner pieces.
I cut white shimmer textured cardstock to 4” wide by 4 ½” tall for each banner piece.
The way I make sure each banner piece is the same length, is I first use my paper trimmer to cut the banner piece to the correct width. Then, I use the banner punch board to cut my banner shape. Lastly, I use the trimmer to cut the length the same for each piece.
I attached each of the wire hearts with washi tape. This allowed me to attach the hearts to the banner pieces, but also hold together the wire where the ends meet.
Next, I created more flag banner pieces using patterned paper from Crate Paper’s new La La Love collection.
I used the mini alphabet punch board to spell out the word LOVE.
I attached the letters to my patterned paper using foam adhesive squares. Then, I added some heart sticker Thickers to each letter.
To assemble the banner together, I used red and white baker’s twine. I tied each piece together making a little bow.
This banner is so festive and fun. I love the mix of wire hearts and paper. This Valentine’s Day banner looks so cute on my pallet shelves gallery wall. Do you make a banner for each holiday?
