Crush Valentine’s Party Banner + A Giveaway!

Good morning, We R fans! Jen McDermott here, sharing a fun party decor project to help you celebrate Valentine’s Day! I LOVE banners, and how fun they are to put together, and just how much they dress up a party theme. I also love how easy We R makes it to put banners together easily, using the Banner Punch Board.

I grabbed the Crush collection, my banner punch board, and got to work! First, I cut one of the 12×12 sheets of Crush cardstock into 6 4×6 rectangles, then centered them on my punch board to slice out the notch.  Then, using some pretty embellishments, the Crush Ephemera pack and some American Crafts Sticky thumb foam adhesive circles, I started layering all my bits and bobs. Here’s a closer look at a few of the banner pieces:

I just love how the Ephemera shapes and words blend so well together, and the foam adhesives add an extra bit of dimension!

I strung all of the pieces together using some pretty cream tulle and tied some cute bows on the ends.  How cute would this be to decorate a dessert table at a Valentine’s party?!
