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!

This is so cute Amy! What a great addition to your mantle. 🙂
Your banner is delightful! I love the idea, as I know what you mean about missing the Christmas decorations off the mantle when they are put away until next December. Very pretty and fun (and who’s to care if the stitching is off a nano on one flag – only you will know LOL!).
Thanks, Stef! You’re right — we’re always our own worst critics, aren’t we?
This is so pretty! Love these colors!
This is GORGEOUS!!! I actually love that each pennant is the same! Pinning!! 😉
LOVE your banner, I love all of your creations and now your BLOG! Every single thing is just beautiful, beautiful, beautiful and inspiring! Thanks for sharing yourself with us Amy! 🙂
