Be My Valentine - Banner

We finally have a fireplace with a mantel, which means now we can put up special celebration banners for each occasion.  Happy New Years, Merry Christmas, etc...  and for Valentine’s Day, I went with “Be My Valentine”.  Hopefully Chris will accept!

To make a holiday banner like this some people use a cricut.  But I still think it’s a bug that chirps and keeps me up at night when I am camping.   Valentines Day Banner Celebrations
I just made a PowerPoint Template (Free Banner Template HerePDF and PowerPoint Versions), printed the letters and the banner outline template, punched the letters out with a 3.5 inch scallop punch, used a sharpie to make dots in each of the scallops, cut out the first banner piece and traced that onto the colored paper I wanted to use for my banner.  To assemble the banner together, I punched holes in the top of each banner piece, used a scrapbook adhesive runner to attach the printed letters, and used ribbon to string them all together.  Voila!

One last thing that I did was plan ahead.  I cut out matching banner pieces and attached them on the back.  This way I am ready for “Happy Mother’s Day”, “Happy Father’s Day”, and “Happy Snow Day”.

Here is where I found some inspiration for my banner.  Amy at The Happy Scraps Blog shares her beautiful Happy Birthday {Banner} here with lots of great photos.

She does have a cricut, which probably keeps her up at night for another reason – the ability to make a million cool projects.

Happy Valentine’s Day!
