Love Banner – #Simply G45

By Katelyn Grosart


"February is all about celebrating love, so why not create a cute vintage banner that you can use to decorate any area of your home with. By using the ATC Alphabet tags in red and black along with the Place in Time – Deluxe Collector’s Edition, I was able to create this cute vintage Love Banner as my #SimplyG45 project.



Tip: Don't be afraid to combine two different colour of ATC tags to create your banner.



Tip: Adhere patterned paper in behind the letters on each of the ATC tags to make them pop.
