Love Banner

My mom decided to dress up the house for Valentine's Day. To say the least neither one of us actually owns any Valentine's Day decorations. So we have some red placemats and towels and of course these very cute curtains. So inspired by the curtains, I decided to make this cute love banner. I have to say I really like the way it came out.

In between each letter, I took some wire and strung some Pretties in between. You know all the things in the Pretties kit you have no idea how you are going to get rid of. Well after putting like 7 beads in between each letter, there is still so many beads left!!!
This banner is actually perfect for this week's Pals Paper Arts challenge. The challenge is bows. There is a total of 8 bows on this project!

So here is the ingredients to make the love banner as well as some close up shots.
Paper: Riding Hood Red, Whisper White, Bella Rose Designer Series Paper (retired)
Accessories: Pretties Kit, White Taffeta Ribbon, Rhinestones
Tools: Crop-a-dile, Glue Gun, Big Shot, Serif Essentials Sizzex, Hearts & Brackets Sizzex, Bird Punch, Elegant Bouquet Textured Impression Embossing Folder, Square Scallops Square Duo
