Valentine's Day Banner

Upon seeing this super cute Valentine's Day banner, I knew I had to make something similar of my own for our kitchen/dining room. I decided to incorporate a scripture into my banner and chose 1 Corinthians 13:13- "So now faith, hope, and love abide, these three; but the greatest of these is love."

I like the idea of using book pages, as in the original, but since I was adding more words, I figured it would be better to use a combination solid and printed paper. I cut my paper into 4" by 6" rectangles. I then folded the top half inch over to be able to hang each piece on the string. Once I cut a triangle out of the bottom of each rectangle, it was time to add the words. I typed up the scripture and printed it out, then cut apart the words and used double-sided tape to attach them to each flag. A little more double-sided tape and some string through the flaps on the back, and the banner was done.

If you would like to make a banner of your own, my document with the scripture is available here. Please print this for your own personal use only. Thanks!

  1. Aimee! I loved your banner so much I went ahead and made my own. Unfortunately, I'm not sure it's as cute (or professional) looking, but nonetheless... I hung it up and we're enjoying a little Valentine decoration.

    Thanks for the great idea!!

  2. What a cute banner! I love how you always have something season-appropriate hanging :)
