Here’s how to make a Conversation Heart Banner:
Draw a heart on plain paper with a pencil. Cut out then trace onto Kunin Classic™ Felt Baby Pink, Lemon Yellow, Peach, Minty and Baby Blue with a permanent marker. Cut out with scissors. Layout the red letters first and then create your heart shape to the correct size.
TIP: Remember to cut inside the lines so that you have a clean, finished project.
Select messages then pop out letters from JOY SA Iron-On and Embroidered letter sheet. Line up on hearts and iron on according to package directions.
Draw a rectangle 5” wide by 8 ½” tall on plain paper. Then measure 2 ½” to the center and 1 ½” up from the bottom. Draw lines from the center point to both bottom edges. Cut out the banner shape. Then cut five (5) banners from Kunin Premium™ Felt White. Attach conversation hearts to banners with hot glue.
Measure and cut five (5) rectangles 5” wide by ½” tall from Kunin Classic™ Felt Red, then cut out. Trim one long edge on each rectangle with scallop scissors. Attach to the top of each banner with hot glue. Flip banners over and embellish with Expo International Red Ric Rac. Line banners up on your work surface and attach Expo International White Ball Fringe across the top with hot glue.
