Valentine Pennant Banner

There's nothing like a trip to the craft store to get our Valentine creative juices flowing.
We took a stroll through the scrapbook department at Craft Warehouse and fell in love with a line of Valentine paper by My Mind's Eye.  It's called "Love Me"
Once we saw the whimsical valentine pennant print, we knew we had to have one in "real life" size.
  We really don't need another pennant banner, ah...but the papers are so fun!
To make the banner, we picked up 3 x 2 1/2  inch chipboard pennants and chipboard hearts.

For the other pennant sizes, we used the paper cutter to slice squares, rectangles, 
 and a couple of larger pennants.
  
We used Mod Podge to glue the papers to the chipboard.
Then we used a small hole punch to make holes for the string. 
 It takes some muscle to punch through chipboard and a layer of paper!
It's so easy to make!
We might have to head back to the store to stock up on this cute paper before it's gone!
