Today, I am sharing my February banner for my ‘12 Months of Banners‘ series. February makes me think of Valentine’s Day and love, so I decided to create a heart banner for this month’s banner. It is mostly pink and white with touches of gold. It is perfect to go with any Valentine’s decor.

Supplies needed:

For this banner I found some adorable pink paper from the Pebbles, Inc. paper pad that was a rosy pink color with little white hearts all over it. I used one 12″ x 12″ sheet and cut three 4″ wide strips from the paper.

Cut paper into 4 inch strips

When creating crest banner shapes, I line up the bottom of the paper along the blue horizontal 7.5 line and in between the two white vertical lines labeled with a 4 (since my banner is 4 inches wide) on the banner punch board.

Close the cutting arm, and use the cutting blade to trim down first from the left and then from the right along the top guide.

Pull the paper out and trim the paper to approximately 5 1/4″ long. Punch holes on the top edges for the string to go through.

Cut out the heart shapes on white textured cardstock using the Cricut Explore. You will want to choose 6 project copies so you have two hearts for each banner piece.

I ran the larger heart shapes through the Evolution Advanced with a heart embossing folder.

I attached the larger heart to the banner using adhesive. I then attached the smaller heart shape using adhesive foam squares.

I added gold eyelets to the holes at the top using my Crop-O-Dile.

I felt like the banner was still missing something so I added some pieces from the Crush Collection ephemera pack using both adhesive and foam squares.

I used red and white twine to tie each banner piece together with a bow.
