cards and bunting

I have seen so many cards and LOs using paper bunting that decided that I had to have a go at making some bunting myself

I cut three triangles 1 from each of the following papers and about half a dozen circles
Fancy Pants Road Show - Dainty Print
Fancy Pants Road Show - French Press
Fancy Pants Road Show - Cards

I inked all of these shapes with brown chalk ink


I then cut some triangles slightly larger than the paper triangles from kraft card and stuck the paper triangles onto the kraft triangles. I cut the circles i punched earlier in half and attached these to the kraft triangles then I punched holes in the corners of the triangles.

Next I took a birthday cake candle and tied it to a button and then using wet glue attached the button to this cute little siver thing I found in a craft shop. The glue dries clear so wont be seen once its dry!

I attached the candle embellishment to one of the paper flags.

I tied the 3 flags together with ribbon and then attached them to my backing paper. I used the reverse side of Fancy Pants Road Show - Dainty Print Paper


I cut a rectangle from Fancy Pants Road Show - Vintage Stripes paper and used the reverse to mount the above on

I added some rub-ons, lace and bling to the remaining 2 flags


I added my greeting and attached to my card base


I made another card using just 1 of the flags. I glittered a chipboard swirl and stuck the bottom of the flag.

Then i added some pins


I attached a decorative brad to the middle of a flower and stuck this in the middle of the chipboard swirl

I added a strip of bling
Then stuck the flag onto a large flower

I made my card base from kraft cardstock. I cut some strips of paper from Fancy Pants Road Show Papers

I tied some ribbon to the flag and attached the flag to the card

I added my greeting and here is my finished card
