Make a Book Page Pennant Banner

My latest addition to my Valentine's Day book page decor is this LOVE pennant banner (check out my Valentine's gallery wall for more great book page art ideas).  It was super easy and I love how it looks hanging on the mirror in my entry way.

Supplies
  • Book pages (4)
  • Red construction paper
  • Scissors
  • Glue stick
  • Permanent marker
  • Twine
  • Font you like (I used Sketch Serif. You can get it here)
Instructions

Step 1: Cut your pages
I folded my pages in half and cut off the raw edge. Then I cut the bottom off at an angle to make points.


Step 2: Cut out hearts
Cut out four hearts. I made mine big enough to span the width of the text on the page. 


Step 3: Write your letters
To do my lettering, I pulled up a font I love (Sketch Serif) on my computer so I could use it as a guide for how to write my letters on my hearts using a permanent marker.


Step 4: Glue your hearts to the pennants
I used a glue stick to glue my hearts down to my book page pennants.


Step 5: Attach to twine
I cut a length of thick garden twine long enough to hang across my mirror plus about 6 inches. I folded down the top margin of the book pages, which made a nice little pocket for the twine. Then I glued down the edge on the back with the glue stick (and added a piece of scotch tape for back up).

That's it!  Super easy and quick
