DIY: Valentine's Day Banner

One of my goals this year was to create banners for every holiday so that I can store them for next year. 

Here is the one I made for Valentine's Day. I used Martha Stewart Valentine's Day paper for the backgrounds and just traded off between red and pink solid paper for the letters. I printed the letters on the Silhouette using Captain Howdy font. I learned from my Give Thanks banner to have my Silhouette cut holes for the ribbon so that I don't have to estimate where the center is with a hole punch. I also discovered how to use the "offset" and "align center" settings in the software, which worked out really well and made things a lot easier!

Other than that, this project is pretty self explanatory! 

Here is my mantel after I threw up all things Valentine's Day to take this picture :)

I've been working on a project for my Show Some Love blog hop post all night. I have to get my wisdom teeth out tomorrow morning at 8:30 am {not excited}. I'm hoping that I recover quickly so that this project gets finished up in time to post on Sunday!!

{wish me luck...}

{P.S. Sorry this post sucks, I'm really tired and thought I'd get in one more post before Sunday.}
