Buntings are all the rage. I made my first bunting 2 years ago for Read Across America Day and I have made them for bunches of parties since. I am changing my theme this year (again!) and going with a modern twist. I am doing orange and green patterns with a smattering of dinosaurs to keep it fun.
So, I started making some buntings for bulletin board toppers. I LOVE putting coordinating ribbons in between the letters. Ribbon is kind of my thing. I have a large ribbon collection. It is just so pretty!
I can’t wait to get these babies up on my boards!
So here is my little mini-tutorial and bunting ribbon trick.
It is also perfect for adding extra ribbon ties! Which are SUPER cute!!! Thinner ribbons work best. As you can see below, I cut a few of my ribbons in half. (Green polka dot) This will work since grosgrain ribbon doesn’t fray as much, and these aren’t going to be handled a lot. Ribbon over 1″ are generally too bulky for this purpose. I also like to throw in some sheer ribbons. They give pop and sparkle without adding a lot of bulk.
Thanks to 4th Grade Frolics for the fun linky party! My head is twirly for next week!
