Bunting workshop

This is from the workshop I did when I visited inspirations in Preston last time. I'm a little obsessed with bunting at the mo, and I was sent these fantastic papers to play with - wizard of oz. They are amazing.

So this is what we did:

Sorry, photos abit rubbish, but we're going to go through each piece individually.

So, the grunge paper bunting:

All the flags were cut by hand. This one we used red pearl card base, then black card.

The edges are a spellbinders die. For this one we actually used two scrap pieces - always use the scraps!

The munchkins are cut from a piece of 12x12 paper, covered in munchkins, so you just pick a few out. These are double sided papers - so the back of the paper was used for the wording.

Okay, grunge paper. We embossed it to get texture. I used Eco paints to colour it, a different colour front and back. Then just using your heat gun, heat the grunge paper whilst curling the paper. When you heat grunge paper it holds it shape, so we can create movement on our first bunting.

The ribbon has been dyed. It's cream vintage ribbon, one of my ultimate favs! I've actually dyed it with watered down Eco paints. Scrunch it up then dry it with the heat gun, and not only have you got ribbon the right shade for your project, but it's textured as well! Brilliant. Use a few colours along a long length for variants.

Okay, next section tomorrow
