Valentine Banner Tutorial


Hi all…it’s Ginny here to share a sweet little banner I created with lot’s of bit’s and pieces from my Valentine scrap and salvage box.

IMG_2872This banner was so easy to make. The hardest part was getting my Cricut down from the top shelf lol.

IMG_2863I started with Sweetheart Cherries Grosgrain Ribbon.  I used my Scor-Buddy to create these pleated  1 1/2 inch wide strips of book page. Walnut Distress ink gave the outside edge a nice detail. With hot glue I attached it to the flat side of the ribbon.

IMG_2864Here is the other half on the bottom. Notice how it’s not even remotely straight???? lol…that’s how I roll with the glue gun.

IMG_2865Pretty doily donated by friend Bobbie.

IMG_2866Add a red cardstock circle to the front.

IMG_2867Now layer on two folded lengths of Red Plaid Ribbon.

IMG_2868This circle if off white…I inked it also.

IMG_2869I finished off the center banner section with a sweet little glittered heart image with cherub, ticket, and tiny red clothespin.

IMG_2870This side has a little love letter with clip and very glittery I.

IMG_2871This little heart text block was just a bit too wide…so I threaded it through the U and added another clip.

IMG_2872I think it turned out pretty cute.  Maybe I’ll hang it on my Hubbies bathroom mirror for Valentine’s day. Or……I can hang it up in the shop as part of the seasonal decor lol.I hope you all enjoy a happy and productive day and find some time to be creative : ) G
