It took about 5 minutes, but looks so darn cute hanging on her wall. All you need is some string, a stapler (i used Tim Holtz tiny attacher for that added cuteness effect) and some ribbon. Oh, and I put a button on either end, but thats not a necessary part.
Thank goodness I had Miya to help me pull the string out of the box. Not sure I could have managed on my own!! 🙂
I measured the ribbon into a variety of lengths so that the finished piece was a bit quirky, but i did measure 7 cm of string between each ribbon. I stuck a little piece of double sided tape on the ribbon, folded it over upon itself, trapping the string inside, and then secured it in place with one tiny staple from the tiny attacher. Then I used my scissors to cut a triangle from the bottom of the ribbon to create the flag arrow-point look. An easy way of doing this is to fold the ribbon in half lengthways and then snip from the fold out to the edge in a diagonal snip. This way your arrowhead will be even on both sides.
I am sure that when Miya saunters into Piper’s room she looks up at the bunting and smugly thinks to herself, ‘I helped make that!!’.
So pretty Lesley, love checking in to and keeping up with your site – you’re full of fabulous ideas! And Miya’s a very helpful kitty! A wee query – where do you get your adhesive letters? Spotted the yellow ones you have in the photo with Miya and would love to get some xo
Hi twinnie, I pick up letter stickers nearly anywhere. We dont have a lot of craft shops near us, so any time im at a craft show i keep my eye open, and if im buying anything online a few packs of letter stickers usually make their way into my basket. Try sites such as http://www.craftsuperstore.co.uk, http://www.scraprevolution.co.uk, and http://www.capturethemagic.biz. The ones in the photo are from a company called doodlebug, and i think capture the magic sells them here http://www.capturethemagic.biz/acatalog/Simpy_Sweet_Stickers.html
Thanks sweetie – just love the simplicity of those doodlebug ones.
Didn’t even know http://www.capturethemagic.biz existed – very happy to have discovered a new craft supplies site – tho don’t know whether my purse will feel the same! xo
