Have you seen the BEAUTIFUL colors in the DCWV Colored Burlap Stack? Here is a preview photo from their site.
The pink was PERFECT for my Valentine's Day banner! And it was so easy to make.
I cut a 5 3/4" heart from the George and Basic Shapes Cricut cartridge on a piece of scrap paper and then used that as a template to cut the 6 burlap hearts. I simply used some blue painter's tape to tape the heart down to the burlap, and then cut around it.
I had some teal and purple ribbon in my ribbon box, and I could not decide if which one to use on this banner, so I ended up alternating between the two colors. To attach the ribbons to the hearts I first cut the ribbon into pieces about 6" long, and then I pinned the ribbon to the back of the hearts in the upper third portion of the heart.
I did a zig zag stitch on my sewing machine with a hot pink thread. This stitch served several purposes . . . it attached the ribbon to the heart, it will keep the burlap from fraying and it added a pretty border.
Then I needed to add some sparkle. I cut the word LOVE out of gold rhinestone sticker sheets from The Buckle Boutique with the thick font on the Opposites Attract Cricut cartridge. This cartridge also has a shadow cut, and I cut some deep purple cardstock to go behind the gold letters to really help them "pop".
