This year we have decided to have a small surprise birthday party, to celebrate their special days. And I have decorations on the brain. And my to-do list is getting long. Full of little projects to create a fun, vibrant atmosphere. So, all week long I'll be sharing those projects with you!
Projects will include:
- Paper bunting (today)
- Paper pinwheels
- party favors
- Sweater stuffies
- Birthday girl skirts
Vibrant Paper Bunting Tutorial!
First gather your supplies. You'll need:
- Square paper (I used scrapbook paper 10 x10)
- hole punch
- sewing machine (optional)
Step 2: Using a straight edge draw a line from the bottom left corner to the top of the first line. Continue connecting the lines on the diagonal, top to bottom until you have all your triangles. I found that doing it this way you get the most out of your paper. When you are finished it should look like this...
Step 3: Start cutting! Th only took me about an hour. When you are finished You'll be left with a lovely pile of colorful triangles.
Step 5: Once you have sewn all your triangles to the desired length, punch a hole in each end.
