Decorating for Dudes

Women more so then men like to decorate for the holidays.   For the most part, our male counterparts could care less about seasonal décor (or any at all…)   As a way to make Valentine’s Day "sweet" but not too girlie, our contributor Monika Wright created this banner with our dudes in mind.  Using stamps from SMIRK Peel & Stick by PSA Essentials, Monika created a simple banner to dress up the picture ledge in their bedroom.   

After trimming her kraft paper to 1.50" x 8.50", Monika stamped images and SMIRK sentiments from Smirk Kiss Me Now.   She added a heart shape, made the inverted V shape for her banners, and then folded them over onto each other so that she could string them on baker's twine and jute twine.  She used gardening twine as another little touch of masculine flair. You'll notice that she used hunter and rink ink cartridge for this project,’s really the perfect complement to the kraft and twine.

So, what do you think, does it pass the test?  Not too girlie?
