Make a Ribbon Bunting
Make A Ribbon Bunting
You’ve seen them in home décor, party pictures, and paper crafting—pennant banners, or bunting, are everywhere! Here’s a quick way to add bunting to a card or scrapbook page using bits of leftover ribbon:
- Start by lining up your pieces of ribbon in the order you want them to go on the card. Don’t worry too much about the length right now, you can trim them later on.
- Make sure you have a good amount of thread to start out with, then place your first piece of ribbon just below the presser foot of your sewing machine.
- Sew slowly through the first ribbon bit, then add in the next after leaving a few stitches in between. Finish off by leaving a thread tail after your last piece of ribbon at the other end
- Attach to your project by securing with a few stitches, or by using brads as I did here:
This card is an invitation for my girl/boy twins 1st birthday party—I love how the colors of the ribbon perfectly complement the Raggedy Anne and Andy theme!
And what party would be complete with out decorations? Using May Arts ribbon in the same palette, I whipped up this banner to greet guests as they come in the door:
This is super quick and easy to do, similar to the mini bunting, except this time I used the elastic ruffled ribbon to attach all of the ribbon flags across the top. So cute and fun—I can’t wait for the party!
