Hello everyone! I can't believe that Valentine's Day is just a week away. My 2013 has been WILD! I have a small tutorial today for a quick heart banner.nina-yang-heart-banner

I made it within 10 minutes:) The finished heart is about 8-1/2" - a good size for home decorations. This is also a great way to use some of the pretty paper we've been hoarding collecting. I used my favorite V Day collection of all time: With Love by Pebbles.nina-yang-heart-banner-closeup

Here is what you will need for this project: 12x12 Paper Craft Pins Twine A scoring board (Scor-pal, Martha Stewart Scoring Board, Score-it...) nina-yang-heart-banner-supplies Cut paper to 4" x 12". This is the front of the paper I am using. nina-yang-heart-banner-step-0 Step 1. On the back of the paper, score at 6" and make a small mark at 2" as shown: nina-yang-heart-banner-step-1 Step 2.
