$3 Thursday - Another Love banner

I don’t know why but I’ve made more love banners this year that I’ve probably ever made.

This one I made with some chipboard pages from a mini scrapbook from the dollar section of Michael’s.  They usually have some great shapes and you can’t beat 5 or 6 chipboard shapes for a dollar.

To start I used two sheets of patterned cardstock to cover the chipboard pieces.

I used some letter cards that I had in my stash but never used.

I grabbed some clear flowers and colored them with alcohol inks.  Both are items that I haven’t crafted with in a long time.

The silver glittered embellishments were a dollar a package from Target.

They have some great items for $1 in the scrapbooking section.

I attached the flowers to the letter cards with an eyelet.

I also used a few eyelets in the already punched circles in the letter cards.

This Lucky in Love is from a sheet of scrapbook paper that I’ve cut up and used on a few Valentine projects.

I don’t have a lot of space to put all these mini banners so I set this one on my ribbon jars over the pinks and reds.

Looks good and it doesn’t take up much space.

Not bad for a couple dollar craft supplies and items from my stash.
