quickie valentine banner

31 January 2012

Oh, I so needed a little crafty creative fix with all this healthy stuff and working on the master bathroom. This was just the thing.

These cute little heart clips were $1 in the Target dollar spot.january 2012 069 1

I printed out BE MINE (since there were six clips, a six letter phrase was perfect)  in Ecuyer DAX font (free!) onto white cardstock. I think it was about size 200 font. I ripped apart a clear scrapbook page cover (ahem..since I don’t scrapbook anymore) and cut it into a triangle to fit over the letters and traced.

Amanda from Red Barn Candle Company shared how she uses $2 Walmart yarn for wannabe bakers twine in our favorite things party in December and I totally copied her!!january 2012 039 1


$1 for the clips, $2.xx for the yarn, and can I say the paper and ink are free since I already had them? Please?

thank you.january 2012 064 1

  3. Oh my! First of all, super cute idea. LOVE how you hung it on the chalkboard. Second of all, thank you for giving "credit" back to me for my wal mart yarn {look alike bakers twine} discovery. :) I am extremely thankful for the exposure to my little blog! :) Take care pretty lady and thanks again.

    Love it!  Thanks for the heads up on the Walmart yarn.  I missed that in Dec so I'm glad to know that trick.

    Thank you also for showing us a basic banner without aid from a Silhouette or any other fancy smancy machine. :)

    I love the Weston mirror too!

  6. Kirkland's !!! My favorite place to spend some time dreaming creatively. The Emily circles mirror would be SO perfect. I just completed an abstract painting of circles and seem to be on a circle jag. Walking around my house I can find five places, maybe more, that the Emily circle mirror would be great.

  7. I love it and I can't get enough of that font!  

  8. Super cute and quick.  Love those kinds of projects.

  11. Soooo cute and I am sooooo copying your idea! Thanks for sharing.

  12. Cute!  Love the font so I downloaded it. Thanks so much.

  13. I have to say, I never comment on posts (I read so many blogs it'd take the rest of my life ;) ) but I love this! :] Such a creative way to make a cute & cheap project! I love reading your blog! Thank you for not switching it over from Google Reader!


Thank you for taking the time to leave me a note!
