Valentine heart banner tutorial

Hello All :)
So we moved into our new home a few weeks ago and I have been w/o internet until this Friday..I have done so much since we moved and feel like I have a lot to catch everyone up on ...but for today...let's just have fun!I have been hard at work on my V-day mantle.Today I finished up my banner.I love it so much that I wanted to show everyone how to make their own!

 All you need is : a few squares of felt(I chose pinks, red and white)buttons,ribbon,felt stickers and a glue gun (ignore the yarn...I ended up using ribbon instead)
I cut out heart shapes and then cut out larger hearts with the white felt to make it look like an old school valentine, then I glued on random buttons and added some cute felt stickers that I found at Michael's

After I was done with the hearts I simply glued them onto the ribbon

I Love my finished product, it goes along really well with my other mantle decorations.I will post pictures of the mantle as soon as it's complete!
I'm linking up to these parties!
