Inspired by a recent visit to a craft exhibition and some new purchases, I've been busy making some bunting in preparation for the Queen's Diamond Jubilee celebrations in June. (I can't believe I'm so organised!!)
I used a Bunting Pack of ready cut cardboard triangles
Cut strips of paper and laid them on the triangles
Then whilst holding down the strips I carefully inked over them, covering the whole triangle. A low tack adhesive tape would probably have been easier than the strips as I had to do gymnastics with my fingers to hold them all in place while inking!
I stamped randomly with my new Portobello Road stamps (Docrafts).
I ♥ these stamps! (Seen here with some of my new buttons!)
I removed the strips
And even some of my new washi tape (from here)
Finally I stitched (with invisible thread - my latest discovery!) all the triangles onto ribbon
And strung them up
In the conservatory! I need to get some lovely red cushions to put on the sofa but for now I will use the cushion that my son made in school a few years ago.
Are you going to be making any bunting?
