I think it's safe to say now that
Spring has "finally" Sprung!!
Outside temperatures have been rising
and I love hearing the birds chirping and singing
when I go out in the morning
in contrast to the dark sleepy silent winter mornings
of the last several months.
...and we've had a few of those
"April Showers" recently.
I was inspired to try my hand at
making a flag bunting. I see them everywhere now.
There are so many online for any number of
So here goes....
First I cut flags from art paper.
I chose the square shape rather than triangles.
Packets like this make choosing
coordinating or complementary patterns easy.
I wanted to put words on my flags
and wanted something
to make the words stand out.
I thought of plain white square labels.
But then thought paper doilies would be reeaally cute.
Thinking 4 inch doilies may be too big
for my little flags. I began searching online
to see where I could purchase doilies smaller
than 4 inches in diameter.
Then I thought why not just use an image
of a doily.
So I found an image online and added my text.
I edited out the black background to save on ink.
After printing I cut out each doilie with a
decorative (pinking type) scissor
then just glued the doilies onto my flags.
I had some dollarstore clothesline
on hand from a previous project.
Folded the flag over the clothesline
and taped into place.
Happy Spring to you all.
