14 Days of Valentines: Day 4 "14 Reasons Why I Love You" Banner

It's day 4 of 14 Days of Valentines, a countdown to Valentine's Day one craft at a time.


What was intended to be Day 1's project made its grand debut at Day 4.  I just didn't get the "14 Reasons Why I Love You Banner" finished in time, so my valentine will be getting 4 days of "why I love yous" in one day.  Nothing to complain about, I dare say.








And how was it made?  Just scroll down to check it out.

Supplies:
  • Cardstock (I threw some paper bags in the mix, too.)
  • Twine
  • Glue Gun
  • Sewing Machine & Thread

 Cut out 14 long rectangles and fold into thirds.  Cut the top into a triangle as seen below.


Break out that sewing machine.  Fold the bottom half up onto the middle (keep the flap pointed up) and stitch along the edge.  (After my first attempt, I actually started from the bottom so that I could do the entire edge in one shot.  Efficiency, people, efficiency.)




 Make a template of numbers, print, cut out and glue onto each envelope.


Heat up the glue gun, run a bead of glue just behind the flap and adhere the twine.


And that's it!  A 14 Reasons Why I Love You Banner and only a little late just in time to let your loved ones know how much you care.





Day 4 down, 10 to go!
