In about 30 minutes you can make this decorative Valentine’s banner and have it hanging on your mantle.
You’ll need several for this project.
Your letter cards will determine the size of each pennant. My vintage cards measure 2 1/4″ x 3 1/2″, so I made my pennants each 3 1/2″ x 5″. I laid a letter card on the cardboard pennant and determined where to cut the “tails.” If you don’t have letter cards, you can print out individual letters on white paper or cardstock.
The smaller pennants that bear the hearts, measure 3″ wide by 3 3/4″ long (at the longest point).
I used my scalloped heart punch to make my hearts, but if you don’t have a punch, you can make them the old-fashioned way–by hand 🙂 Glue the hearts onto the triangle pennants and the letters on the ones with tails.
Use a piece of twine to assemble your banner. I put tape on the end of the twine to keep it from unraveling while I threaded all the pieces on.
Thanks so much for stopping by and taking the tour with me!
