It was a BANNER weekend

On Saturday I was happy to be stuck at home! I went crazy and made 4 different Valentine banners!!
I used my silhouette machine (only for the second time) and cut all the letters out.  It was fun creating with what I had at home.

If you are still with me... and want to know what I used:
most important, I USED my silhouette!! and cut the letters out from the vinyl.
I used a painters drop cloth for the banner material.  I used the "heart's" from a deck of cards (a small deck and large deck found at goodwill).  I painted all the hearts on the cards with sparkle paint.
I sewed the cards to the banner triangle.  I also sewed the banners to different seam bindings.(I knew Be My Valentine was going to be too much .. so I tried to make it a two line banner).   Then I added rick rack or pompoms to the top.  
Then the fun part of embellishing each one!
ahhhhhhh good times!!!

Love your banners...a terrific job. I just ordered chipboard to try to make them and plan on painting the background color and stencil the letters.

Great job!! I love them all! I would love having a machine to cut out things for my crafting. I've heard the Vagabond is ultra~cool because it does more than just cut, it embosses too & who knows what else! Only in my dreams...scissors for me I'm afraid!
Blessings,
Cindy
