A friend and I are planning a hugs and kisses baby shower in February and I wanted to make a XOX banner. I came across this one at yourhomebasedmom.com. It was so adorable I made my own. She has a great tutorial but here is how I did mine.
I used Word to blow up an X and an O and then printed them out on cardstock. I cut them out and then traced them on some foamboard (the hearts I just free handed).
I cut out the foamboard letters with an exacto knife and then spray glued some scrapbook paper on them. I used the exacto knife again to slice around the paper and foam leaving a perfect fit.
After drying, I used a sharp pencil to poke holes through the shapes. An ice pick or kabob stick probably would have worked better but I didn't have one on hand. I carefully threaded ribbon through the holes and...
...TADA! A cute hugs and kisses banner. So simple!
I am getting excited to display it at the shower and use it in my own home for Valentine's Day!
