I have a Fall banner and a Christmas banner which I hang over the fireplace every year. I’m always a little sad when I have to take the Christmas one down because I think my mantle looks so bare. Never mind that it’s made even barer because all of the Christmas decorations are gone. I also have a Spring banner, but it’s too early for that right now, so I was determined to make a Valentines banner. Valentines Day is extra special in our house because my older daughter is a Valentines baby. I didn’t have a lot of time to spend on making a banner though, so I needed to keep it pretty simple. Here is what I ended up with:
I made each panel the same for simplicity’s sake.
I just fed each panel through my sewing machine to connect all of the panels (of course the one I photographed has a crooked row of stitching ;)). That makes it easy to store for future use and it makes it easy to hang.
I used the largest sized pennant from the Perfect Pennant Bigz die. The hearts are from the Hearts-a-Flutter framelits, and the buttons are from the Sale-a-Bration Sycamore Street Ribbon and Button pack, which will be available January 22nd.
Enjoy your Wednesday! Thanks for stopping by!
