Welcome back to the 6th day of the Twinery's "Be Our Valentine" Blog celebration !
Today, just like the sign says, we're bringing you banners and garlands...here's my Valentine's Banner:
I had a lot of fun creating this! I cut the double sided shapes using my Silhouette and hung them along a clothesline of Strawberry and Stone Twinery Twine with some little clothespins! Here are some close -ups:
I tried to do a little something to each of the main banner pieces involving twine. On the first piece, I created a dangling heart in the cut out portion of the pennant using some Stone Twine.
Such a simple thing, but I love how it looks!! On the center banner piece, I created a "plaid" center by adhering Maraschino, Stone, Blossom and Sorbet Twine in a grid pattern between the two layers of the banner. It's actually such an easy technique, but it looks like you spent hours!
On the remaining pieces, I used some Maraschino Twine to outline the lips, created a wrap with some Stone Twine and added a little bow of Stone Twine to my hearts.
It really was a fun and pretty easy project to put together, and I love how it looks on my fireplace mantle!
