Don’t you just love a bunting? Apparently lots of us do because they are all over Pinterest! I recently made a Fall Wreath that I embellished with a miniature bunting I crafted myself. Here’s the details if you want to make your own.
- Brown Cardstock
- Fall Scrapbook Paper from the Martha Stewart Animal Masquerade Paper Pad
- Slice Elite Cutter, Stencils, or Punches
- Happy Trails Design Card
- Parties Design Card
- Martha Stewart Ballpoint Glue Pen
Determine the length of the space that your bunting will be covering, and cut a piece of twine the appropriate length. Mine was intended to embellish my Fall Wreath, so I cut my twine 12 in. long.
Using either an electronic cutting machine, stencil, or punch, cut 4 triangles out of the brown cardstock. The size of my triangles was determined by the length of my twine. I cut a few different sizes out with my Slice Elite using the pennant shape on the Parties Design Card to see which size would allow me to fit four triangles across my twine. I ended up using the 2 in. triangle.
Using either an electronic cutting machine, stencil, or punch, cut out “fall” from the Martha Stewart Animal Masquerade Scrapbook Paper of your choosing. I used the scraps left over from decoupaging my Fall Wreath. To cut my letters, I used the Happy Trails Design Card for my Slice Elite in the 1 1/2 in. size.
Glue the letters to the triangles. I like to use my Martha Stewart Ballpoint Glue Pen for little, detailed pieces like this. I can easily control the amount of glue, and it adheres paper to each other wonderfully. I highly recommend you invest in one of these if you don’t have one.
Place the 4 cardstock triangles on top of each other, and use a Crop-A-Dile to punch out 1/8 in. holes in each of the top corners of them. By stacking the triangles, you ensure that holes will be in the same place on each of them. The Crop-A-Dile easily punches through 4 sheets of cardstock.
Thread the triangles onto your twine.
Here’s the finished product.
Isn’t it adorable? I’m sure you’ll be able to think of loads of ideas for this mini bunting other than just adorning a wreath. Happy crafting!
