Valentine’s Day Decor- Easy DIY "Be Mine" Banner

Each and every week, on Tuesday morning, Silhouette releases a “Free Shape of the Week” in their online store.  The shape is usually something interesting and fun, and I always make sure to download it.

A few weeks ago, they offered the Be Mine and Love Banner as the free shape of the week.  I had been considering making a simple paper banner to hang under our mantle, and this shape proved to be perfect for that!

I decided that the “Be Mine” portion of the banner was what I would use.  It has a few more letters and would fill the space better.

I cut the banner shapes from red cardstock, the letters from light pink cardstock, and the doily design from white cardstock.  I also cut out one extra banner and doily, as well as the three small hearts included, to use as a space between the words “Be” and “Mine”.

I attached the doily to the banner shape by using double-sided tape.  The letters were attached using pop dots to give them a slight 3D effect.  The I strung the pieces together using some ribbon I had on hand.

The result is an adorable, festive banner that adds a bit of color and fun to our mantle and fireplace.  Raileigh thinks the banner is absolutely wonderful, as she has been saying “Be Mine” to me for over a month now! She’s definitely caught the Valentine’s Day spirit this year.

I love the banner because it’s completely reusable, and I will be able to put it up again when the holiday rolls around next year.

Have you decorated for Valentine’s Day?  What kind of decor do you prefer to use?

    I’ve kind of been itching to get a Silhouette. I always cringe at the price, but there are just so many things I’ve encountered that can be done with them. I think it’s going on my Christmas list this year!
