framed valentine’s day banner | doodlebug design…

Good morning!  Have you started decorating for Valentine’s Day yet?  I am sharing a fun idea over on the Doodlebug Design blog today – a framed banner.

I used the new Sweethearts collection for my project.
 
I started by cutting 3x5 blocks from the 6x6 paper pad. I notched the bottom of each piece to create the banners.

I cut the patterned paper strip to add to the top of each banner, and wrapped them with washi tape.

Next, I started embellishing each flag with stickers, tickets, jewels, etc. Each flag is different, but they all coordinate wonderfully because I used pieces from only one collection.

After each flag was complete, I punched holes in the top two corners and connected them all with doodle twine.

Finally, I covered the back of the frame with patterned paper and attached the flags with foam dots - I love the dimension these little foam adhesive dots add.

I love adding a little bit of Doodlebug love to my entryway to be enjoyed until February 14th!
