So here is my Valentine banner. What's a mantel without Holiday decor???
I decided to make a simple heart garland using scrapbook paper (I think it's by Echo Park), paper doilies and ribbon.
First I cut about 36 heart shapes on my Cricut. I got 2 per page on my Cricut Expressions (I set it to cut at 5 inch).
I folded each heart in half and inked the edges with black. After I folded them in half, I glued 6 of them together, still folded in half.
Then I glued it to some extra paper doilies I had at the house. I only had 6, so that's what I went with.
Then I layed my heart doilies (with the hearts glued down) and traced it onto the black paper. Cut it out and glued it to the doilies.
String 'em all up and mount them on the mantel.
Add some ribbons....
My heart garland.....
