Valentines Part 1

I discovered the wonderful world of craft, diy, nest blogging when I googled "diy valentine crafts". That was about a week ago and most nights since then I have stayed up after all have gone to bed to look, look, look and look some more.

Here is my first Valentine craft, it is a banner that says "Be Mine". It was quite simple to make. I cut out heart shapes in pink and red construction paper. I then downloaded a "valentine" font from a fee font site and I printed out the words then cut them out. I glued everything together, punched holes in the top of the hearts and strung it together with some cute cord I found. This is a project that you can incorporate with any holiday. I am already thinking of an Easter banner!

Michele I love your banner! I happened to get one in one of my swaps and just loved it. I have been wanting to make one but I am more of a visual person so now I can see exactly how to do it and will just have to add some of my ideas to it.

So glad you came over. I was at your orignal page..the six of us...but saw you did this for family members so I saw this other blog you had. Wanted to tell you have some beautiful children!
