DIY Valentine’s Day Banner

Valentine’s Day is such a fun festive holiday, and one that is full of sweet DIY projects. As a paper crafter I am always looking to use my supplies in different ways. For this banner and the decorative straws I am using some of my steel dies, felt, and twine to create cute projects.

The great thing about these projects is that you most likely have the supplies on hand, and if not you can always trace and image and hand cut it. You can also substitute the felt with pattern paper and that would be really fun as well.

Here is what you will need:

Red Felt

White Felt

Pink Felt

Alphabet Die Set (Quinn’s ABC Lawn Fawn)

Heart Shaped Die (American Crafts Dear Lizzy)

Glue Gun

Bakers Twine

Sizzix Big Shot

To create the banner start by die cutting all your shapes and letters.

I like to use a grid mat to make sure I get the correct spacing between hearts when adding the twine. I have a found a glue gun works best for adhering the hearts to the twine.

I had a few extra hearts to I thought it would be super cute to add them to some paper straws. I just love how they turned out. I hope you have enjoyed this quick and simple Valentine’s projects and can’t wait to see what you are creating this month.
