[MAKE] VALENTINE'S DAY BANNER

PHOTOGRAPH BY SALLY J SHIM

Valentine's Day is right around the corner and I still have a few more diy projects (and free printables) to share with you. Here is a sweet and simple Valentine's Day banner that you can hang up in your home. I designed them to be printed on 4.25" x 5.5" sheets of cardstock, but there are a few options as far as how to make the Valentine's Day banner.

Option 1- print out the letters, punch two holes on the top of the cardstock, and string the letters.

Option 2- print out the letters, cut out the individual letters (shown above), punch two holes on the top of each letter, and string the letters.

Option 3- print out the letters, cut the individual letters, adhere letters to contrasting cardstock, punch two holes on the top of the cardstock, and string the letters. I used metallic twine to string my banner, but you can use ribbon, cording, or yarn. 

MATERIALS

1. 19- 4.25" x 5.5" pieces of white cardstock 

2. Printer

3. X-Acto knife

4. Ruler

5. Cutting mat

6. 1/16" paper circle punch

7. Twine (I used silver crochet thread.)

INSTRUCTIONS

1. Download the Valentine's Day Banner here.

2. Print the banner on to 19- 4.25" x 5.5" sheets of white cardstock.* **

3. Cut out each letter using a X-Acto knife, ruler, and cutting mat. 

4. Punch two holes at the top of each letter.

5. String twine through the holes on top of each letter.

6. Hang up your Valentine's Day banner.

* Please note if your printer does not have a borderless printing option, then set your document size to 4.25" x 6", but use a 4.25" x 5.5" piece of cardstock.

** Please note you will need to print out 3 letter A's, 2 letter P's, 2 letter Y's, 2 letter E's, and 2 letter N's.
