Valentine's Banner - Pt II

It's time to finish up the Valentine's Day banner....

Here is where we left the actual chipboard banner pieces - vintage sheet music with a bit of pink and brown ink.

Next I added the crepe paper medallions to each flag.

I wanted to string them together quickly so I cut 4" lenghts of ribbon and stapled them to the corners.  The first and last bits were approx. 18" long for hanging.

After I had all the individual flags fastened together I covered the staples with some vintage lace. and double stick tape.

I then printed out several vintage Valentine images from Altered Pages.  I cut them apart and added a bit of brown ink to all of the edges. Each flag of the banner was embellished with two images.  You can add more or less if desired.

  1. This is so adorable Roni!! I'm making my Valentines yet but this is a great diea! (yes..so mailing them means they'll be late!..my family loves me anyway!)

    My DH used to buy me jewelry each Valentine's Day when we were first married. I had to stop him! Imagine that...a woman stopping their husband from buying her jewelry!!! BUT...I only have 1 neck & 2 earlobes!! Now we go out for lunch or dinner and remember all the wonderful years we've been together! I do wear jewelry!!!

  2. That is a gorgeous banner. I'm fixing to make wedding shower decorations, and am definitely using sheet music now!!!!

    I'm easy when it comes to gifts--it doesn't take a whole lot to make me happy, so seriously, a little bit of chocolate, and it's all good at Valentine's Day!


  3. This turned out so cute! I would love a chance to win it.

  4. Great banner! I saw it on Altered Pages today, too. Thanks for a chance to win it.

    A great Valentines Day gift for me tomorrow would be a Pajama Day--a day to just hang around in my pajamas and read or craft a bit, get take-out food delivered, play music really loud. There's no chance that's going to happen but it's fun to imagine it!

  5. what a lovely banner, anyone who wins will recieve a beautiful article
