How to Make Some Easy Valentine’s Day Buntings


This is a Valentine’s day bunting craft super easy to make, and also great to make with kids – after cutting, of course. If only my girl didn’t destroy every piece of paper she found, I would have been happy to let her participate! I hope I can do these things with her very soon!

This cute garland can be placed in any place you want to add a special touch, like your fireplace mantel, your office, your bedroom, and even your dining room.

What type of papers can be used for this project?

Your style is the limit although the paper weight could limit too. From craft paper, scrapbook paper or cardstock, decorated/embossed cardstock, plain school cardstock, book pages, and construction paper, among others.

Supplies:

  • Pink Yarn – or twine works too.
  • Pink Cardstock – one light, other dark
  • Cutting files – You can download the bunting shapes free template below.

Tools:

  • Cutting machine – Silhouette Cameo or Cricut machine
  • Scissors

1. I made this cute Valentine bunting cutting file that you can download HERE and I cut 2 different colors of patterned cardstock, one dark pink and another light pink.

2. I cut about 4 of each bunting and 9 hearts.

3. You can use your favorite color combinations, even modify the sizes. You can personalize it as you like.

4. Once I had all the cutouts ready I started inserting the yarn through the wholes of the buntings and hearts.

5. The pattern I used was: One dark bunting, then a heart, then a light bunting, then a heart and repeat until the last one!

6. There you have it! No glue, not tape, just like that!

I love how it turned out!!!

Crafting Tips

  • You can choose some funky patterns or textured cardstock to give your buntings that extra oomph! How about some polka dots, stripes, or even glittery goodness? Let your imagination run wild!
  • Don’t be afraid to experiment with different sizes: Sure, you could stick with the provided shape, but why not mix it up a bit? Try cutting some buttings in different sizes and layering them together for a more dynamic look.
  • Try using embossed cardstock or add texture with a texture tool to make your buntings look more dimensional.
  • Give your paper bunting a whimsical glow by adding some LED string lights. Now your buntings can shine bright like a diamond, spreading love and cheer day or night!

What do you think??? Like it??? Want to make one???

Hope you like this quick and fun craft for Valentine’s Day! This super cute and easy paper heart garland is so much fun to make with kiddos too!

Frequently Asked Questions

What is a Silhouette Cameo machine?

Ah, the Silhouette Cameo! It’s like a magical crafting wizard in machine form. It’s a cutting tool that works with your computer to precisely cut out shapes and designs on various materials, including cardstock. It’s your secret weapon for creating awesome paper heart garlands or any paper craft for that matter!

What type of cardstock should I use for my Paper Buntings?

Any type of cardstock will do, but thicker cardstock works best. You want your hearts to hold their shape and not flop around like a limp noodle. Also, consider using cardstock with fun patterns or textures to give your garland some extra pizzazz.

How many buntings do I need for my garland?

It depends on how long you want your garland to be and how close you want the buntings to be spaced. I cut 8 buntings and 8 heart decorations.

Can I mix and match bunting sizes?

Absolutely! In fact, using buntings of different sizes can add visual interest and depth to your garland. Plus, it’s just plain cute.

Can I use my own designs instead of a heart template?

Of course! The Silhouette Cameo machine can cut out any design you create in the Silhouette Studio software. So go ahead and get creative creating the bunting banner you love the most!

  1. Found your darling cut file
    today! I’m going to try this
    in felt, have you done it in
    felt? Really sweet and thank
    you.
    Carla from Arizona

    1. Hi Carla, thank you so much!
      To be completely honest I haven’t tried this on felt. It’s a very intricate design and it was challenging even on paper. But much has changed since Cameo 1 so it might work. The only way to know it is trying, right?
      Let me know how it went!
      Happy Holidays!
      with love,
      Cami

  2. I cannot get the bunting file to download. Is there another format I can use for my cricut. Would like to make this for my church’s Valentine banquet.

    1. Hi Nita,
      I’m working on converting that design to SVG and DXF files so anyone can use it. Right now it’s a Silhouette File. I think I might be able to update the downloadable files and links tomorrow. I’ll let you know!
      Thank you so much for your interest in using my design, you rock!
      hugs!

    2. Hi Nita! I fixed the downloadable folder. Now you will find an SVG and DXF file so you can hopefully open it on your cutting machine app. Hope it works. Please don’t hesitate to let me know if you have any problems!
      Hugs and THANK YOU!

      1. Not sure when it was that you changed the file format, but I cannot download it either. So sad, it is so beautiful.

        1. Hey Kelly,
          I will check it out to see what happened and let you know. Thank you for letting me know hopefully you will be able to download it soon!
          Hugs

  3. I can’t get the bunting file to download in a format that will work with my Cricut. Am I doing something wrong? Thanks!

    1. Hi Sandra, Thank you for reaching out! No, you are not doing anything wrong. I’m so sorry, the file is a silhouette file because I created the design in their app. Give me a couple of days to figure out how to save it in a different format and I’ll get back to you as soon as I can.
      Again I’m sorry and talk soon!
      Hugs

  4. Hey Cami! just discovered you here and love this garland. However, the link said it wasn’t there. Is there another place to download the cut file! I really love your design!

    1. Hi Brenda, Thank you so much for your lovely comment… I think I know it’s not working, and I have quite some files to fix… thanks for letting me know about this one! I’ll fix it and I’ll let you know as soon as I figure it out! Seems like it’s something with the place the files are hosted!

      Thanks so much again and I’ll get back to you soon!
      XOXO

    2. Hi Brenda, me again… you can now download the cut file. Please let me know if you have any problem with the link. Thanks again for letting me know about it!!!
      XOXO

  5. Love this garland! It’s projects like this that make me wish I had one of those cutting machines! Thanks for sharing at The Pin Junkie! Your garland is part of today’s Valentine craft roundup!

    1. Hi Catheen, thanks for letting me know! I fixed it, please chack out if it’s working now and let me know! Glad you like it!
      XOXO

  6. Hi there!!! I just bought the silhouette cameo and the valentine’s bunting was one of the first things that I wanted to make. Thanks so much for supplying the cut file. I do have a question however. It seemed like the blade was not really cutting all that well at first, so I switched to a new blade. That worked for three of the intricate pieces, however, started to get messy on the fourth. I had the blade set at 4 for card stock and had just left it on the general speed. As a newbie to the cameo, I’m not sure quite why it wasn’t really cutting all that well. Any suggestions? Thanks again…I have the bunting on my fireplace!!

    1. Hi Erin, so happy you like this craft! It’s super cute! I have a few ideas about what could be happening but I thought it was even a better idea to ask on a Silhouette group I’m in and they told me to invite you and give you access to some of our files. So you will have a lot of help among us! please send me an e-mail to titicrafty@gmail.com and I’ll send you the invite!

      XOXO

  7. Hi Cami,

    Your bunting looks amazing!!! From reading other comments, it looks like you’ve inspired people to purchase s Silhouette! Thanks for the detailed tutorial and the cut file so the rest of us can try this beautiful project.

    I love everything about this glass block cookie jar. My only problem would be that as much as I love the way that the Sweethearts candy looks inside the glass block, I love eating them even more and soon the candy jar would be empty! Haha!

    This will make such a great Valentine’s Day gift! Thanks for sharing the tutorial and the cut file.

    I’m really honored that my “LOVE Banner” was included in the Silhouette “Valentine’s Day Round-Up” along with your great bunting!!!

    Peace, Love and Joy,

  8. I love the candy pouches they are neat and the bunting is awesome,but I have no machine to cut them out. I would love to have a machine to cut things with all the detailing. By the way I do visit your site when I can,you have some really awesome things. Wish I could afford a machine,and all you had to do is press buttons and slide the paper in it.

  9. Your Valentine craft is being FEATURED over at The Wednesday Roundup this week!!!! Well deserved, this is so cute! Don’t forget to come on over and grab your FEATURE button and of course link up a new project.

  10. Wow pretty pretty! I have got to get one of those cutters!! Thanks for linking to Snickerdoodle!
