Love Bunting

This post was from last year and it's what is hanging on top of my love birds painting.

So I got my inspiration for my project today from my friend Kristy over at The No No Room. Here's her idea for a Valentine's Day banner. I love all the layering that she did.

So my first supply to get was some coasters, just like Kristy started with. I ended up with round ones because that's what they had at Red Robin's where we ate on Sunday with my parents.

I inked all the edges.

Next, I decided the base paper for each coaster.

I added embellishments and strung it up on twine.

Here's an up close shot of the heart. I just inked it and accordion folded it. 

The white hearts you see are actually buttons and I just cut the plastic loop off of the back. I still like Kristy's version way better but I'm happy with how it turned out.

I had an extra coaster so I made a magnet out of it that I plan on giving my parent's for Valentine's Day. I just need to find a picture of Sophia to add to it. I just hot glued a magnet on the back.

I found these cute hearts in the button section.

Love it! I can't find my banner since the move- maybe I will make a new one now that I am inspired!
