Valentine's Day: L O V E Banner

 I saw this banner here, it's something being sold on Etsy right now, and it's cu-ute.  I made it last spring to go with a shabby sheek/beach themed shower. 
I chopped some pennant shapes out of burlap, used my cricut to cut out letters on freezeer paper, and ironed them down. 
 I used a dabber and some white paint.  That little circle dabber saves my sanity.  I used to just use foam brushes to do this, but it's alwas seeped, the dabber....it's like the  magic wand of projects. 
The paper comes right off, and then I just hot glued these to a rope, and added those big satin ribbon (about 3 yards total).  Burlap meets satin ribbon bows-they have these sort of banners in heaven.

Burlap is perfect for Valentine's Day: old-fashioned, romantic, simple.

I sense a trip to JoAnn, coming on tomorrow.

Love the banner. Pinning it to my Valentine's Day folder...
