Paper banners are one of my favorite things to make. They’re easy and quick to make, which I love.
This cute envelope banner can be filled with love letters and used like a countdown if desired. Or you can just make it decorative.
DIY Cricut Valentine’s Banner
- Cricut (I use my Cricut Maker 3)
- Scrapbook Paper
- Bone Folder
- Hole Punch
- Baker’s Twine
- Tape (optional)
- SVG (link at bottom of post)
Mix and match the scrapbook paper and cardstock as desired. I love red, pink, and aqua so I chose those colors. But feel free to use your favorite colors and patterns.

- Upload the design and cut it. I used scrapbook paper for the envelopes. Each 12 x 12″ sheet fits one envelope.
- Duplicate the hearts as many times as needed and cut those out of cardstock.
- Use a bone folder to fold each envelope. Use the pointy tip of the bone folder to score the edge against a ruler. This makes it easier to fold.
- Apply glue to the flaps of the envelope and press it shut.
- At this stage, you can add love letters if desired.
- Seal the envelopes by gluing cardstock hearts to the envelope flap.
- Place something heavy on the envelopes until the glue dries.
- Use a hole puncher to add holes to the top corners of the envelopes.
- Thread the baker’s twine through the envelope holes. (Make it easier by taping the end of the twine before threading it through the holes.)
- Hang and enjoy.
