Valentine’s Day Banner

I spent some time in my craft room this weekend, after bringing my hubby home Saturday from the hospital.  He had a plate and seven pins put in his leg to hold his tibia together – sounds fun, right?  Yea.  🙂

So, after spending all day and night Friday in the hospital with him, and most of the day Saturday, I was ready to be home and de-stress with some crafting.  That always makes me happy!
I decided to start decorating for Valentine’s Day, so I made a cute little banner.  Here’s how:
I cut 2 patterns of cardstock into 4″ x 6″ strips, then made triangles.
Then I cut these 2 patterns of cardstock into 3 1/2″ x 5 1/4″ strips, then made triangles.
I laid them out and layered the triangles.
I used red glitter cardstock to cut out X’s and O’s and a heart.
I used glue dots to attach the X’s and O’s to the layered triangles.
I used decorative elements – pink and white rhinestones and a fabric brad.
Finally I strung pink ribbon through each piece and hung it on the wall!
It looks cute hanging over the picture from our wedding 🙂
I didn’t stop there.  You might have seen this awesome idea floating around Pinterest from Eighteen25, so I made it, too:
Aren’t they cute?  Four years of Christmas cards are now in these beautiful little books.
I felt so much better after spending time crafting.  (Don’t worry, I took good care of the hubs, too.)  My craft room is my happy place, so I’m officially happy now!

  1. Sorry. Accidentally deleted my post. Anyway, I found you on Money Saving Mom and I love this idea! Cute and do-able. I think I’ll make a green one for Saint Patrick’s Day that says ‘Irish’.
