Valentine's Day Banners

The Xmas decorations are tucked away and a new year has begun.  Valentine's Day is just a few weeks away and I can already feel the love!  It's been bitterly cold here - the perfect weather for staying indoors and crafting.  I whipped up two banners over the weekend that I plan to use for Valentine's Day.
This sweet Marie Antoinette image is from Etsy.  I've used it in several projects and never tire of it.  For the banner, I printed it out on cardstock, punched some holes at the top of each card and slipped through some tea-stained seam binding so it could be hung.
I added some pink glitter around the edges of each card.  A faux pearl is the cherry on top of the cake.  Next up is this LOVE banner I made using some vintage Romeo & Juliet book paper.
This is the same font I used for my Xmas NOEL banner.  It was a little tricky lining up each letter on the paper, but I think I have it mastered now.  Again, I punched some holes at the tops of each page so I could add my tea-stained seam binding.
I just love the vintage lettering, don't you?  I'll be using it again for a Pottery Barn knock-off project this week.
