Paper Valentine Banner

Paper Valentine Banner

Last Friday my cousin Chelsea and I got together to make this paper banner.
It's for a baby shower we are hosting for her baby sister and my baby cousin.

Yesterday Chelsea came over with her two little one's and we finished the baby banner.

The banner was so fast and fun we each made a Valentines Day banner.
Chelsea was throwing out ideas fast.
Brilliant ideas!
It's fun to be with someone so creative and happy.

We used old stamps, music sheets, doilies, scrapbook paper, old book paper and glue.
Lots of glue.

It didn't take long until we each had seven different circles for our banners.

Because we decoupaged them (to make them stiff) they curled up quite a bit.

When the circles were completely dry I put them in a huge book to flatten them overnight.

My big huge book has info on how to split an atom if you are interested.

Chelsea and I plan to finish the banners on Friday.
It was a really, really good day.
P.S. The knitting is coming along.
I have photo to share soon.
