This issue has been out on newsstands for a few months now, but I’m still giddy that the Vintage Valentine Pennants I featured on the blog last Valentine’s Day appear in this amazing magazine!!!! Did you pick up your copy? There are so many amazing, inspiring ideas for all of the holidays!

publicationFor this Valentine’s Day, I created another pair of pennants. Pennants are such a novel way to use up scraps and little bits of ephemera. Put them in a vase of flowers, tape to a cabinet door, or tie to the top of a present. Super cute!

This pair of pennants was made using one vintage valentine, cut into 2 pieces, so that they coordinate well together. A vintage Bingo card cut on the diagonal, creates the base, and patterned cardstock stitched across the Bingo card, helps the valentine images “pop.” Just love this sweet little boy with the floppy bow tie. I think this valentine dates from the 30’s, but has some really vibrant coloring, that is more often found in retro valentines from the 50’s.

I hope you have an extra-special Valentine’s Day, and are able to share it with those you love.

Happy Creating!
