Valentine's Banner

Well, you knew it was coming, right?  We've made it through Halloween, Christmas, and Winter so here's the newest addition to my collection, Valentine's.

 

The long short of this is that the large hearts were traced off of a wooden heart and hand cut from SU designer papers.  The letters were glittered and pop-dotted onto the hearts (which were simply glued together.)  I used a jumpring to dangle small, embossed cardstock hearts from the larger ones.  As with my other banners, I put eyelets in where the ribbon attaches to the hearts to help strengthen them.  At both ends of the banner, I hung a small glass "bubble-heart" for accent.



Ingredients:
All paper: Stampin' Up
Cuts/Punches (Wow, that sounds violent!): Alpha: Cricut (George), Small Hearts (SU punch)
Other: Glitter: Martha Stewart, Jumprings, Brown satin ribbon, Eyelets, Glass hearts (Oriental Trading), Embossing folders (diamond, dot & "flower")

Challenges:
Better Living Through Scrapbooking #2: Pink & Brown (Ok, so there's more than P&B but they're definitely not in the background!)
Tip Top Tuesday: Valentine's
Die Cutin' Divas #50: Anything Goes

I'm also linking this up at link parties over at Tatertots & Jello and The Grant Life.
