Love is in the Air... And on My Walls!

Hello!  Today I am sharing a step by step tutorial with photos on the DCWV blog on a super cute Valentine's Banner I've created!

I've created this banner using the DIY Project Stack®: Banners, the DIY Paperie mini cones kit, and the Shimmer Premium Stack. I also chose to add some bling with some DCWV Mini Adhesive Mirrors: Hearts and Dazzling Resin Jewel Self Adhesive Sheet in Pink.

I've also created a step by step tutorial with some photos so you can recreate this banner for your home, school, or party:
  1. Start by cutting out your selected pennants and adding a strip of Dazzling Resin Jewel Self Adhesive Sheet to the top of each one.

  1. You will then use twine or string and start to add your pennants by first punching a hole on each side of each one and tying them on. It was during this step that I folded a few mini cones in half. (Four, one on each side of the first and last pennant.)

  1. Next you will start creating your rosettes by trimming the strips provided in the DIY Banners Stack, score the strips at every 1/2”, and fold back and forth until you have 4 small “fanned” strips as shown in the photo below. You will then start gluing (hot glue works wonders for this step!) the strips together to create one long strip, also seen in the photo.

  1. Glue the ends of your strip together to create a circle.

  1. Using a paper punch, die, cutting machine, or hand cut 4 circles to be the backing for the rosettes. You will then push your scored circle down and glue to the back circle you've just created as seen below.

  1. Die cut, hand cut or use a cutting machine to create various sized hearts for embellishments and your letters for the banner. Add the letters together (the Xyron® Sticker Maker is fabulous for this!) and then to the rosettes with hot glue.

  1. Now you can add your lettered rosettes, hearts and other embellishments to your pennants and hang your banner for all to enjoy!
