AMOR Valentine Banner DIY

Rina of used one of my Sizzix dies to make this super cute “amor” banner for Valentine’s Day! I loved it so much, I asked her for a tutorial to share with all of you. She also offered to send five kits to readers, so leave a comment below if you would like one! I’ll choose five people within 24 hours so we can get these mailed out!

Alrighty – here is Rina’s tutorial!

Hello creative friends!

I am so excited to share a really fun craft using Crafty Chica’s Flaming Heart Banner Die. I taught this banner project at Creativation this last month at the “Creativation Cafe” that was hosted by Eileen Hull.  A lot of really cool designers helped to provide craft projects, roundtables on how to cultivate your brand and continued relationships after the trade show – it was a really fun space to show off your expertise and meet new people.

Let’s get started with this fun and simple mini banner. This banner is great for an office cubicle, a bulletin board, a wreath, or for home décor in your kitchen or kids play area. Here are the supplies you need:

Amor Mini Banner Supplies List (includes affiliate links):

Step 1:   Cut all the die cut pieces. Use your Big Shot and cutting pads and this will actually go quickly ~ cut your AMOR letters, then your flaming hearts!   You can cut the heart centers with glitter paper like I did to add extra “sparkle” to your banner.

COOL CRAFTY INFO: Sizzix just released cutting pads that are clear and have a glitter finish. You can check them out here!

Step 2: Next, take your black ric rac and adhere your die cuts to your ric rac using Aleene’s Turbo Tacky. I like Turbo Tacky because it dries pretty fast. This is a necessity at my Crafty Happy Hour events in Southern California!   To learn more about my upcoming events, check out my blog.

Step 3: Now you can adhere your sequins and also add your heart centers. I used washi tape (on the back side) to adhere the heart centers. You can’t see the washi tape when the banner is hanging.

Enjoy your mini banner and may all of your days be filled with plenty “Amor”.

Happy Crafting!
