Countdown to Valentine’s Day: Day 7!

Yes, the countdown to Valentine’s Day continues! The two or three of you who have been following this from the beginning are saying by now: Wow…she…really…iscrazy about Valentine’s Day. And, yes, yes I am.

Today’s post is another how-to. If you’re a blog hopper, you’ve probably seen at least 14 Valentine’s banners by now, but just in case you don’t know how to make one, I’ll show you.

I made mine with various scrapbook papers from my collection. (I used to be a scrapbooker before the guilt from being so far behind almost did me in, so now I just “collect” supplies. It’s fun!) So, anyway, I got several different colors & patterns of paper, a coordinating ribbon (about 3 yards), my paper trimmer, & double-stick tape.

I then cut 7 triangles out of the papers I wanted to make the little pennants. Mine measure approximately 6-1/2″ across the top & 9-1/2″ down the sides.

After that, I cut hearts out of coordinating papers & stuck them on each pennant.

Lastly, I sewed each pennant onto the ribbon using a zig-zag stitch. And that is it, y’all! The hardest part of this project was trying to get it hung where I wanted it. These banners are great for other holidays or birthdays, too. Have fun making yours!
