Love Swag

Yesterday I showed you three projects from my Sending Love Valentine Class. I promised to share more on my favorite project, the LOVE banner today. I created mine horizontally so that I could attach it to pegs on a shelf, but another option is to have it run vertically to enable you to hang easily from a door knob or a single peg,  nail, etc...

The base of each square is a chipboard coaster, which I covered in card stock ran thru my Big Shot using the Polka Dot Textured Impressions Folder. The letters are also chip board which was cut using the Serif Essentials Bigz Dies. I had fun decorating each lettered square with different patterned papers from the Sending Love specialty pack. Here's a closer look at each letter.

The "L" uses Chocolate Chip Satin Ribbon that is on sale in the Clearance Rack right now. I also used a cute button from the Latte Button pack. The "love" phrase on the side of the letter is cut from card stock wheeled with the I{Love}Love jumbo wheel.
Inside the center of the letter "O" is also is cut from card stock wheeled with the I{Love}Love jumbo wheel. I accented the center of the glittery flower, cut from Sending Love paper, with one of the cute Chocolate Chip Epoxy Brads. The "all you need is love" sentiment comes from a retired set called Cute Converse.

My favorite print from the Sending Love pack is this red piece with the pink and vanilla glittery flowers. I decorated the "V" with a Real Red Corduroy Button attached with a piece of Linen Thread.
The "E" is also embellished with a cute Chocolate Chip Epoxy Brad. The XOXOXOXO phrase is cut from card stock wheeled with the I{Love}Love jumbo wheel. I used my Crop-A-Dile to punch holes in the top corner of each square and joined them together using Pretty In Pink Satin Ribbon.
