For Valentine's Day, I wanted to give my hubbie a card that was made by both me and my daughter, Adoration. I also wanted it to be a little something different than a paper card. So we made a fabric banner card! This one was for Valentine's Day, but you could do this for any occasion or holiday.
Step one: Make a potato stamp.
I needed a heart stamp and we had some potatoes already in the house. so I made a stamp out of potato! It was a good choice cause A. we already had it in the house and B. it was perfect for my daughter's little hands to handle.
1: Cut a small potato in half
2: draw a heart (or whatever shape you choose) on the potato with a pen. Cut out around it.
Step two: Stamp away!
I just used plain ol' acrylic paint and a scrap of fabric. Burlap would be great fabric for this. I helped guide my daughter as she stamped.
Step three: If you choose, write a personal message on the banner. I used a sharpie.
Using a hot glue gun, glue the sticks on the top and bottom of the banner.
Step four: Tie a loop of yarn onto the top stick for hanging purposes.
Roll the banner inward from the top and bottom until it meets in the middle, like a scroll.
Tie a bow around the middle and give it to someone you love!
