Oh my love of mini bunting and its many uses is strong! I am thankful my girls are fans as well, and my husband, well he is getting used to my adorning the house in a rainbow of colorful itty bitty party banners. It’s so very festive!
This crafty project is one he’ll appreciate very much, mini bunting note cards. We noticed over the weekend that our card box is pitifully low on birthday cards. But thanks to this little crafty project, I think our stash-o-cards will be replenished in no time! I’m not the only one who has a stash of cards for birthdays and events, right?
What you need:
- Blank white note card and envelope. I used the Recollections Value Pack Blank Cards and Envelopes from Michael’s. They are easy to find and very inexpensive.
- A bit of Baker’s Twine in your favorite colour.
- A glue stick or small puddle of white glue.
- Four pennants of mini bunting. I used my Simple Solid Mini Bunting in pastels.
Cut out your four pennants, then cut each pennant in half, so you have four triangles.
Slide your bit of twine across the top of the glue stick, or through a small puddle of white glue until the twine is covered in glue. Run your fingers down the twine to remove any excess glue.
Position the twine on the front of the note card, gently moving it around until it looks just right and then press into place. Trim the twine so the ends are flush with the edges of the card.
Position your four pennants along the bit of twine until they are evenly spaced, then secure in place with glue.
Let dry for 30 min.
Once dry, store with an envelope until your next birthday/shower/wedding/i miss you/just thinking of you celebration/moment arrives. Then take the opporutnity to share your crafty goodness with the world, possibly attached to a lovely little package to gift.
I think a little set of mini bunting note cards, bundled with some pretty coloured envelopes and wrapped in pretty ribbon would make a lovely gift at Yule/Christmas. Give someone the gift of correspondance. The simple joy of receiving a card in the mail, so very sweet. Sigh.
