Tutorial For a Free V-day Banner

My sweet blogging friend, Mimi Sue, brought this free font (thank you, thank you, Allsorts!!!) to my attention on her Site. Thanks Mimi Sue!
So I printed up my letters as instructed. Most of you will want to print up "Love", but I already had a LOVE banner.
It's cheaper if you just put these circles on paper, but I already had the chipboard circles. So I painted the edges red and glittered them.

And there you have it. You can use this font for any holiday. Thanks 'Allsorts'!!!!!
I got these napkin rings at our local antique store. I decided to use one of them to make a crown for my Santos figurine.


And I decided to play around with the little cupcake Christmas ornament.



Next, I've been wanting to try my hand at one of these Decorative cones for a while. I got this package of 10 party cones at Walmart for $2.00 (on clearance) if I remember right. I think they were in the wedding supply isle. The red garland trim and fancy toothpicks I got on sale after Christmas.


I wanted to share that I went to JoAnn's today and ALL their Valentines things were 40% off .
I also added beads and a white dove to my hanging hearts.

Of course you take a cute idea and make it 10 times cuter, or 100 times cuter. LOVE the dream banner. So cute with the glitter. The funny part is yesterday I printed out love from the same allsorts font and am in the process of making a banner today! You are the best!! Mimi
