{DIY} Love Banner

I shared my Valentine's Mantel last week and today I want to show you how easy my Love Banner was to make!  About 2 weeks ago Lil' Hunkie went to his grandparents for the weekend and I took full advantage of some 'me' time and went to Michael's! Majority of what I bought was from their $2 section and some of it was for my banner.  


Chip board photo book
Jeweled clothespins
(All from Michael's)
Scrapbook paper

Make it:

Using PicMonkey  and the font 'Rye' I printed out LOVE onto some scrap pieces of scrapbook paper.  It isn't translating well in my photos but the paper is a dark mauve color. And I used brown ink but it looks maroon.  My excitement that I got it to print onto paper taped to paper made the color ok!

I then trimmed the letters down to a rectangle...I just eyeballed it against my chipboard! (I have a habit of using the fold and tear method instead of scissors! And that's how I 'trimmed' them!)

Then I took some of my trim and embellished the bottom of the letters.  I just taped the trim on.  Then I simply used the clothespin to make it all come together.  This way I can use the chipboard again!

Added the ribbon and hung it on the mantel with the pompom trim above it and done!  
Easy as pie!

Next week I'll share my Hugs and Kisses entryway table!

Happy Thursday!
