Hello crafty friends! I have a fun Valentine’s Day craft tutorial to share with you today – a Love Letter Valentine’s Day Banner! I made this banner a couple years ago and love the festive touch it brings to our home this time of year. Banners are quick and easy to make and are perfect for holiday decorating. Plus, when all folded up, they are easy to store!

This Valentine’s Day banner is inspired by love letters! You’ll need a few supplies to create the banner, like paper, ribbon, a hole punch and, of course, images of love letters!

Look for images of vintage letters in magazines, newspapers or at scrapbook paper stores. You can also look online at image sites like Shutterstock (for a fee) or check out sites like, The Graphics Fairy and Vintage Holiday Crafts which feature free vintage images. Just be sure to read their policies for using their images – some allow a certain number for personal-use projects. Many of the pictures featured in my banner were created by artist Lili Graphie, who creates beautiful images of vintage letters and postcards!

DIY Love Letter Banner

Supplies Needed:

Step by Step Tutorial

Step 1: Cut the heart and envelope shapes.

Download and print the free template (located at the end of this post) and cut out the banner shapes. I made my banner with 7 hearts and 6 envelopes. First, cut the large hearts out of red paper. Cut smaller hearts from your decorative paper or images and then glue them to the larger red hearts. Use white paper to cut the envelopes.

Step 2: Punch two holes near the center of the each heart through both layers.

Step 3: Decorate the envelopes.

Start by drawing a “V” with a thin black marker or Sharpie to make the envelope flap. I drew a small heart in the center and then filled it in with red glitter. Punch two holes, one on either side of the envelope.

Step 4: String the banner together.

String the banner together, alternating between heart and envelope. I wanted a knot to be in the center of each heart so I cut my ribbon into pieces in order to do this. One piece went from the center of one heart through an envelope and to the center of a second heart. You could skip the center knot and just thread the pieces onto one long piece of ribbon.
