Easy Paper Banner Tutorial

Last week I showed you how I made a simple paper garland for my Valentine's Day mantel, and I promised to share what did with the leftover scraps. Today's the day! Here is my easy paper strip banner:

Keep reading for the full tutorial!

I took my leftover paper scraps....

and glued them on to a piece of baker's twine to create this fun and whimsical banner!

I used hot glue to attach the strips to the twine. {Just make sure that you only put a little drop of hot glue inside the fold of the paper. That way it will not glue both sides of the paper together.} This method is what makes the paper strips stick out all cute-like :)

I finished the entire banner while watching an episode of White Collar. 
{Great show that my sis recommended on Netflix!}

Valentine's Day is almost here folks. If you are looking for a last-minute gift idea, check this out! I was invited to share some of our Valentine's Day gifts on a local show yesterday {KPVI More} and here I am in my live television debut!

Tomorrow I'll be sharing another way to make a big impact with a little paper!
