This lovely valentine banner that is made with scrapbook paper was one of the first projects that I posted three years ago. It’s still one of my favorites.
I’m not sure too many people got to see this banner, so I thought I’d bring it out of the archives, dust it off, add a few more images, and show it off again ; )
It’s made with heart shapes that look like lace, scrapbook paper cut into pennant shapes, and some twine to hold it all together. It was so easy and quick to make. I think it adds a pretty Valentine’s Day touch even if you’re not a big fan of bright red Valentine’s Day decorations like me. Who says Valentine’s Day decorations all have to be red!
I used my Silhouette Cameo® to cut the heart and pennant shapes, but it can be made without one, too.
If you’re using a Cameo, make the banners using any banner shape you like and adjust size to your preference. I cut my banner shape from scrapbook paper that is designed to look like a page from an old book. If you’re not using a Cameo, simply cut rectangles out of scrapbook paper, to the size you want and notch out the bottom (upside down “v”).
For the hearts, I used designs I found in the Silhouette online store (pictured above), but you could also cut out heart shapes from paper doilies. I used a spray adhesive to adhere the hearts to the banner shapes, then strung them together with twine.
Since I don’t have a mantel, I displayed my banner across the bookshelf in the family room.
Tell me, do you decorate for Valentine’s Day? I must admit that pre-blog days I did not. But it is kinda fun to hang a little something.
If a banner is not your style, then you might like this wreath.
or maybe Valentine Treat Bags.
I love this sweet Valentine’s Day Onesie!
