Heartfelt Banner Tutorial

February 4, 2013

Last year, I shared this sweet and easy heartfelt banner at The Creative Patch...  I thought I would share a little love with you again.

Do you love sweet heart doilies and creamy vintage buttons? 

Here is a sweet heartfelt banner that is a fun, easy and beautiful way to tell those special people in your life how much they mean to you.
Supplies Needed:

Assorted Doilies
Ink Pad - I used Van Dyke Brown Ink Pad
Alpha Stamps
(you can also hand write sweet messages instead of stamping)
Twine
Maya Road Heart Stick Pins
Vintage Buttons

Stamp (or write) sayings on each doilie.

After completing each doilie, now is the fun part...
Add vintage buttons to a stick pin and pin each heart on the twine.

Then hang up and enjoy....
If you want something a little more colorful, spritz Tattered Angels Glimmer mist on doilies "coloring" them your favorite color.  Let them dry and then add your stamps and complete with colored stick pins and buttons.

Wishing you all a creative day.

Great idea! I'll have to dig out my paper doilies now.

Very cute idea. I bet I can't find heart doilies here. But I can crochet hearts. :) Best wishes to you, Tammy
