valentine banner

First you cut out your heart, I wanted my kids touch so i had them scribble all over paper then cut out hearts. 

Then I embossed the hearts for a little more detail with hearts flowers, stripes, whatever I could use, then i inked the edges.

Matte heart onto valentine paper and trim with decorative edge scissors. then add simple letters, you can print them out , stamp or just use your own skills. decorate with ribbons, craft foam hearts, or whatever you have.
Matte it all on black cardstock and cut out. Put brads in each corner and tie all letters together with coordinating ribbons or string.  You can hang it on a mantle, across a window or doorway. anywhere it will beautify your home. Any colors or any other phrase would work, kiss me, valentine, you can do this for all holidays, different shapes, I might try Easter eggs next. Who knows?
