D.I.Y valentine Banner with Kat Scrappiness

Do you have a HUGE stash of 12×12 patterned paper that you got from a Michael’s sale and running out of ideas to use them all up? How about making a DIY Valentine’s Banner? With a few dies from Kat Scrappiness, Inc. you can make a collection of cute banners to display for any occasion and season.

I always LOVE decorating for Valentine’s Day but sometimes I just don’t have the time to go out and get a few decor. Since I have a lot of craft supplies, I figured I’d make my own banner today.

Here’s how I made this project:

  • measure the counter and cut the twine.
  • prepare your hot-glue gun and sticks and line them all up together with your twine.
  • I have a few vase fillers that I purchased from Daiso a few years ago so I figured I’d add them to my project. I adhered the foam hearts first and added the die-cut hearts.
  • make sure to use a silicone mat underneath so your project doesn’t stick on your table.
  • adhere the letters “XO” on the pink heart.
  • use some stickers to adhere on the other die-cuts. As I mentioned we are using our stash so go ahead and add them to your project.
  • I placed my banner on the kitchen counter and added a few of my favorite decor and candles from Home Goods.
  • light up the candles and enjoy your work!

Before I go, take advantage of this Valentine’s deal by Kat Scrappiness, Inc. Sale starts today and ends on the 7th. See graphic below for your coupon code:

From Meow to You with Kat Scrappiness

I am currently in the process of moving to another destination overseas with hubby, so this project was made awhile back. I wanted to share this today since this card is super adorable, and features new products from the latest release by Kat Scrappiness, Inc.

Here’s how I made this card:

  • prepare the background panel by ink-blending some Bristol Smooth white card stock with Distress Oxide inks.
  • use some Distress Sprayer to spray some water on the background. Pick up the excess water using some paper towel.
  • use the Stitched Nesting Hexagon Die to die-cut the window.
  • use some washi tape to temporarily adhere the Ball of Yarn Stencil to the ink-blended panel.
  • for added texture, apply some white deco-foil gel with a palette knife and gently lift the stencil. Leave this panel to dry for about half an hour.
  • adhere the background on some A2-size notecard.
  • die-cut the frame by using two of the Stitched Nesting Hexagon Dies on some white glitter card stock.
  • foam-mount the frame for added dimension.
  • adhere the hexagon die-cut on the window.
  • finish the design by stamping the sentiment onto the card using the Pawsome Cats Sentiments Stamp Set with some Versafine Onyx Black Ink and adhere some red heart for some fun texture.

  • Adhere the candles on the pop-up panel with liquid glue.
