The papers, minus one, are all from the Vintage Valentine line by Fancy Pants. It was the perfect paper for the look I had in mind. The chipboard letters are from Making Memories and have become a fast favorite when making my banners.
I added some buttons from my stash, including the gaudy gold button that I never thought would get used, yet it is the perfect fit! I guess the saying is true, "never say never"! LOL! I love adding the crepe paper ruffles to the top, so I took some extra time to add those. I also added some aqua glitter to the top of each panel for some added detail. The accordion medallions have all been "glittered" with Vintage Glass Glitter, which I love and will tarnish with time.
I quickly punched some heart shapes using my SU! heart punch to layer some of the letters with. Quick and easy, but it really added some extra depth and detail. I also quickly added some zig-zag stitches to each of the panels. The bows and buttons are simply attached with hot glue, after each panel is stapled together. Like I mentioned before, I really will get the tutorial put together! LOL! The gang just got home from church, so I better run and get everyone fed! Thanks for fluttering by!
