Vintage LOVE Banner

Thank you Heather Melstrom for the fabulous idea!!! Go to to see hers.
This is how I made mine:
1. Print out Heather's vintage valentines.
2. Conversation hearts box's ( I bought mine at the Dollar Store
3. Two sheets of scrapbook paper.
4.Ribbon, tule, red embossing glitter, Modge podge, letters to spell LOVE.

How To:
1. Trace a square in the middle of the Conversation Hearts box. Poke in the middle and cut out the traced square.
2. Cover the parts that will have glitter with Modge podge.
3. Start sprinkling on the glitter. Let it dry.
4. Cut out a square of scrapbook paper to go in the box.
5. Glue on ribbon, tule and letters with a glue gun.
6. Cover vintage pictures with modge podge. Let dry.
7. Hot glue on the banner. Picture, conversation hearts box, picture, conversation hearts box, picture.
8. For the clothespins, cover it with modge podge and sprinkle your glitter on it. Let dry.
9. Hang it up in a fun place.
Happy Valentines Day!!!!

This is so cute. I just did a post on all the great thinks you can do with cardboard boxes. I'm your newest follower from frugal Friday's link party. I'm throwing my very first link party tomorrow (Monday). I would love it if you stopped by an added your project.
