Hello all my crafty friends, thank you for checking in today! Valentine's day is about three weeks away and I've been making some projects to share with you. Today's is my first Valentine project this year, I made this fun treat bag banner using my favorite Xyron product - Xyron Mega Runner! I use my mega runners (yes! I have more than one, one for 1/2" adhesive and the other one for 1/4") in every of my projects since I bought them. I don't think I can survive without it. It's a life saver! Of course, it's not the only Xyron product I love. I love all their sticker maker machines too, what a genius invention they make my crafting journey so much easier and enjoyable!
So here is the project of the day, a magnetic treat bag banner for my fridge! The kids are lucky, I made those lollipops myself too (well, with little help)! I have a tutorial for you too to make the banner if you are interested, and as always I will provide you the free cut file to create this (personal use only, thanks!).
Here is how it's made:
Step 1: Prepare a 12x12 card stock, preferably heavy card stocks. Download free cut file (at the bottom of this post) and cut the banners. Here is what you will get from the cutting. Note: Cut the center heart separately if you find the cut isn't perfect.
Step 2: Trim cellophane bags to the height of heart shape.
Step 3: Apply adhesive using Xyron Mega Runner and stick the cellophane bag from Step 2 on top of it.
Step 3: Run the cut-out heart shapes through Xyron Sticker Maker.
Step 4: Adhere the heart shapes from Step 3 on to the front of cellophane bags.
Step 5: Punch holes and apply eyelets on each banner.
Step 6: Using dauber, sponge red color on alphabet stickers (top and bottom only)
Step 7: Adhere alphabet stickers to the banner.
Step 8: Trim a ribbon or twine, string banners together. Apply magnets to the back of each banner.
That's it! Fill the banner with your favorite treats!
