DIY Easy Valentine’s Banner

Besides printable Valentine cards, with my print-outs you can also make decorative banners. They are easy and fast! Here’s what you need:


InkJet Iron-On Transfers: I like the kind made for dark colors
-red and white felt
String
glue
-scissors
Scallop Fabric Shears: these are pricey and with some types of felt you can use scalloped scissors designed for paper instead. Instead I have a by Fiskars (which they no longer seem to make) and I love using them for cutting fabric and felt. They were also a bit pricey when I purchased them, but have lasted me almost five years of cutting fabrics in a scallop shape, and are still going strong. Also please keep in mind you could still get a great shape using fabric pinking shears you might already own to do the decorative edge.

First print out your valentines onto the iron-on paper following the directions on the package. Cut out a valentine with the plain scissors. Iron onto white felt. I then use a combination of my plain scissors and scallop to create a scallop design just around the heart as I cut it out of the white felt.

Use your glue to adhere your valentine to red felt and allow to dry. Cut out leaving a small border of red around the entire thing.

I glued the string to the back upper area of each valentine using a rectangle of leftover red felt. You could also sandwich and glue the string in between your white and red layer of felt, but I wanted mine to be behind the entire thing. Allow to dry and hang up!
