Love Banner

This Valentine banner was so fun to make and Glue Dots® made it SO easy to put it all together. I got the opportunity to play with the new Micro Glue Dots® and they are so cool and TINY! I used them to adhere the lace to the cardstock and to keep the pearls in place. They are a great addition to my stash!  

 I used Glue Dots® Craft and Mini dots to attach the flowers and the sentiment and Pop Up dots to under the letters to add dimension.
I used Glue Dots® Lines to attach the long piece of ribbon to all the banner pieces. This was easy to make and could be customized for any occasion.

I cut my first banner out of a piece of scrap paper to make sure the size was what I wanted and then I just traced and cut out the patterned paper and inked all the edges. I made the pin wheel flowers out of strips I cut 1 1/2 by about 16-18 inches long. I scored the strips at 1/2 an inch the entire length. I used the scraps so some may have been a little longer than others but you can make them whatever size you like. The possibilities are endless. My daughter wants one with her name on it for her 8th Birthday this month. I think I can do that! 

So...get some Glue Dots® and make something pretty!

  1. Love this...some of the little flowers look like the ones I sent you. I think name ones for the girls would be fantastic. How special!
