That package (you can see it at the end of this page), made me realize I have done nothing for my favorite holiday of all. I also realized that I haven't done many normal buntings (triangular ones), for the blog, and so I thought "now is the time." You can read last year's Valentine's day manifesto here or take a look at the heart project here.
I made these little buntings in no time, so if you haven't done anything (like me), maybe this is the perfect craft for you.
As it is pretty straight forward I'll skip the instructions. But I do have one tip; fold the paper and then cut the triangles, don't cut 2 triangles and then paste, believe me, it is much easier the other way.
What I've used:
- old paper (from an old book I got in France)
- glue stick
- glitter (mine is this one)
- glue for glitter (I used this one)
- twine (I used this one)
- alphabet rubber stamps (I've had mine for a really long time, but they have similar here)
- blank cards
I had to show you a fabric version as well. Tiny diamond shapes sewn together. They measure more or less 3 cms each. Obviously the paper ones are quicker, but these ones take just 10 more minutes to make.
Lately time passes through me so quickly that an entire month just goes away without me realizing that it did. I do hope that my Valentine's greeting reach their destination, if not by the 14th at least in February.
And this is the beautiful package that found it's way to my mailbox!
And if by any chance you want to see this movie thinking it will be a romantic one, as it says on the description, please don't. There is nothing romantic about it. Serves me well for not reading the whole synopsis.
