Video Tutorial - Valentine Banner

Hello paper crafters!  Today I'm sharing a video tutorial on how to create this vintage style valentine banner.   I will be teaching you how to create the letters for the banner using a mirrow image on your computer.  You will also learn how to create the rosettes and everything else you need to know to create a valentine banner of your own!


I hope you like the video.  I'm still REALLY frustrated with learning how to edit.  I did the video once and then accidently erased it  : (  .  But I'm not going to give up.  I did learn a few new things this time .... like how easy it is to post the video on my blog.  I have another valentine project in the works to share with you soon.  It will be an altered heart shaped paper mache box.  I've also been working on my valentine ATC's.  Thanks so much for all your support and for checking out the video!

Have a great day!

Beautiful, I love the heart borders! I am terrible at making video tutorials, hence there aren't actually any on my blog. I don't know how some people make those really long involved ones on YouTube. You do a really nice job with yours!
