Polaroid Banner

I'm back with another easy project! I normally decorate for all Holidays, and Halloween is usually my favorite Holiday to decorate for, so today, I bring you my Valentines's decor!

 This year, I'm going low key with Valentines. I usually do way more, but with my husband traveling for work interviews, and my daughters birthday happening a day after my sister's sweet sixteen birthday, it really has all just stressed me out a bit more than usual.

If you follow my Instagram, you know I'm obsessed with the filters and tend to decorate my pictures. So, while I was at this year's CHA show, I got inspired by Teresa Collins Polaroid picture banner, and decided to do something similar, but with paper and letters.

I used my eCraft to cut out the polaroid frames (you can use your own die cutter, like the sillouhette) I cut them to be 5 inches tall, and simply cut out some Teresa Collins' paper, and positioned on the back of the 'polaroid' frame. I used the Teresa Collins' 'Save the Date' collection, and the clouds are from a Maggie Holmes paper pack for crate paper. I like how the clouds add to the picture effect! And the flowers, mixed with hearts and polka-dots from the TC collection, tie it all together and add a fresh, spring feel to it!

The text for the banner was cut with black cardstock on my eCraft as well. And holding it all together, is my trusty, Xyron mega runner glue! Lastly, I simply punched out two holes at the top of the cards, and used some gold twine, to hang it. 

Just to add a little something on top of the mantle, I pulled out my pink lovebird, and used some more of TC's paper to put behind glass in one of my frames. To contrast it, I used one of Teresa Collins' wooden pieces with the word 'always' to accentuate the whole display. 

I hope you liked my banner! This is simple but one of my favorites! 



  1. This Polaroid banner looks pretty good. Although the pattern and colors of the photos are pretty soft and sort of boring for my taste.
