burlap I’M YOURS Valentine Pennant Banner!

To make the pennant banner. I cut out a 51/2 inch paper pennant from my “Lyrical Letters” Cricut Cartridge. Then I traced the pennant onto the burlap several times with a sharpie and the sis cut them all out.

Next letters were cut out using card stock paper, and my Cricut “Platinum Schoolbook” Cartridge. Then my sis carefully stenciled the letters on with red acrylic paint. We tried the glitter glue first, but you need TO paint FIRST, then do the glitter over the top.

My sis with her MAD stencil NO LEAKING SKILLS! woot! Seriously she is the artist in the fam. I should do an entire post on some of her art work and ceramic sculptures. P.S. YES’ Christmas is still up in my house notice the nutcracker? or better yet DON’T HA! …. and YET I continually work on early V-DAY crafts, call it CRAZY PREGO BRAIN IDK?

Next I used a thin narrow brush that I would squirt a little glitter glue on to dab over the painted letter.
here I am carefully adding the glitter glue with a small thin brush. Paranoid to not get any on the burlap, just the red paint. 😉
the letters should come out like this!

After your letters have thoroughly DRIED… the last thing you will do is glue. Carefully lay the jute/twine (?) over the hot glue, I did a hot glue dab in each corner. I used a toothpick to push the jute down into the hot glue. Continue this step until all are glued. Let Dry.

  2. You’ve been inspiring me to bring out all the Valentine decor today, even though my Christmas lights are still up! Love your banner. I was thinking of doing a “Love Rocks” one out of paper on my Silhouette.

  3. We had such fun doing our craft and ringing in the New Year!!! Love ya Jen and our Burlap banner!!!

  4. beautiful.Belated wishes for the happy and properous new year 2011

  5. Since you are such a V-Day nut, I thought you might enjoy hearing about one of our family’s V-day tradition. My mom had a bunch of stuffed hearts kind of like your topiary hearts with our names on them. At the beginning of Feb. we would secretly pick a heart out of a basket and until Valentine’s Day we had to do secret nice things for that person. Then at our family Valentine’s day dinner, we would reveal who we had. It was a lot of fun and we really loved it. Thanks for all your fun ideas!

  6. 🙂 I like it! Banners make everything more fun. Thanks for the great ideas!

  7. Love it!

  8. Very cute!! I can’t wait to start working on some Valentine’s Day crafts. 🙂

  10. Super cute!
    I have probably made a paper banner for every holiday last year and then threw them away but, this year I told myself I would make them from fabric to keep!
    I love the burlap look!

  11. Love the burlap! I want to make a banner like this to use at Craft shows. Would love for you to come visit me at Sew Chatty and link up to Made with Love Monday. I host every week. I am leaving the party open longer this week so that people can link up multiple projects if they wish to. Hope to see you there! http://sewchatty.blogspot.com

  12. I love all of your valentine decorating, it looks great. I just wanted to share a secret for the painting of the burlap banner. Use freezer paper, it irons right on to the fabric and then when you paint there is no leakage and it just peels right off when dry. Look up tutorials for freezer paper on the internet, it’s awesome stuff.

  13. LOOOOVEEEEE it 🙂 Looks fantastic!
