Vintage Valentine's Love Banner

Just stopping in to share one of my latest holiday creations. I am so excited about this as it is the first ever banner I have made, and I just love the way it came out. I definitely feel a case of banner fever coming on, so there are sure to be more soon.

I'm also really happy I made this banner for Valentine's day because that means that I have actually decorated my house for the holiday.

Every year I start off strong and steady going all out for Halloween, then pushing it with all I've got for Christmas time--but by the time I get through Christmas I'm usually too exhausted to drag another box of decorations out of the basement.

But I was determined this year, and my four year old was my main motivation.

This is the year that he has really gotten into decorating for the holidays, so I didn't want to let him down. And what a better way to get over the Christmas tree than to decorate for Valentine's day!

I used a package of Jenni Bowlin Chipboard banner pieces that I dug out of my stash as the base for my creation. I truly was inspired to make this type of banner by Elizabeth at Creative Breathing and all her wonderful vintage creations.
