Instructions:
1. Choose a phrase and count the shapes that will be needed; one per letter. Trace the template onto card stock and cut out all of the shapes. I no longer have my original template, but I found a substitute HERE. You can also search "bunting template" for more options.

2. Place a Valentine sticker on each heart doily.
3. Glue doily on the front of each banner triangle.

4. Add letters using either stickers or writing with a pen on each triangle.

5. Add lace in three separate pieces with hot glue.

6. Punch holes near the top of each assembled shape, then thread ribbon through in letter in order. Thread from front to back on one side, draw the ribbon across the back, then pull forward through the opposite hole.

7. Tack each end of the ribbon up to display the banner!

Lovely! So fun to see a project from you! I just made a crochet Valentine garland and strung it up on my china hutch. Those red and white alternating hearts make me so happy inside! Can't wait to try your red velvet cupcakes too. YUM! ~Kelly in MN

Oh my two older daughters will love doing this project! Such a great blog you have. I have been spending time looking at all your great ideas! I found your blog when searching on a tutorial for tea staining tags, but I couldn't find it on your blog. Do you still have it posted? Your etsy store has so many cute things btw! Thx for your help!
