Have you jumped on the banner bandwagon? My goodness, they’re a hot commodity. Well…I have a really simple Valentines day Banner from scrapbook paper. It’s made from ONE sheet of scrapbook paper. So incredibly easy.
I love that I made this so inexpensively. AND…it’ll look incredible with Rose Bouquet made from Discount store, flowers. that I made over at Deja Vue Designs today. If you plan, or would like to plan on giving flowers this year, you should check it out. I’ll show you how to make it look like a florist made it!
How incredibly cool is that? It’s like it was just meant to be a banner. Each one had a front and a back, so I really had 12 to choose from.
I love the color combination in this page.
I started mine by cutting a length of this cream twine the length I wanted the banner to be, plus about six inches for each end.
By looping the twine…I started my end knots.
Now take both thicknesses…and loop it over again.
Now make a knot
Now you can just hang it over a hook, or a nail or whatever.
I cut each rectangle out and then I folded them in half (don’t crease them) and cut my v shapes out of the bottom.
Once I had one done, I laid in down on the other five so I would get the v’s all the same depth.
Now do the same at the top to punch your holes. That way your holes are exactly the same distance from the ends.
Punch the holes through both sides at once.
Now begin to fish your twine or ribbon or whatever you choose, throw the holes. See below how the twine wants to fray?
Here’s your solution: Take a piece of tape and wrap it around the end, and cut it into a point. Then you have a “needle” of sorts, and your rope doesn’t fray. Just don’t go too far, you’ll most likely have to cut it completely off…so just barely cover the end.
I just love the way it looks hanging on my beds.
I just have to decide which one I like the best.
What do y’all think? Did y’all see my
