I covered strips of card with co-ordinating papers then cut them into triangles.
Then I inked up the edges with distress ink to give them that old look.
I printed words onto card using a vintage font then
painstakingly cut out each letter by hand.
I bought a die for this purpose but thought the letters were too small.
Again I inked up each letter then stuck them one to a flag.
Punched holes in top corners of each flag.
Cut some twine to length (it was a bit thin so I used four lengths together)
and threaded it through to join the flags
I left a 7 inch length at each end. Knotted a loop, leaving a 2 inch end to
which I attached a jingle bell and knotted on a piece of ribbon.
Ta Da !! a length of cute bunting only about 2 foot long.
More to come.
