my first little tutorial.

Wednesday, March 21, 2012

Today i was feeling minimally crafty. Here's the thing. I love to craft. But I hate messes even more than I love to craft. So as I'm crafting I get a little stressed knowing that I'm making a mess. I need to figure something out to fix that. First step, organizing my craft box into a more accessible organization system. Stay tuned on that one. :)

I decided to make...


Materials: a piece of scrapbook paper (mine is from a book of half sized papers purchased at good old Hobby Lobby), note cards of some kind (again, from Hobby Lobby), scissors, a paper clip, hot glue gun or some other kind of strong glue, some cute and THIN string (mine was from Anthropologie's collection of Christmas gift wrap).


Find these little babies near all of the greeting cards at your local Hob-Lob!
I have a mild obsession with this string. It was really fun to find yet another use for it! 

First, take a paper clip and use the end to poke a little hole in one side of your note card. Ideally, I would own an extremely miniature hole punch. But I don't know if those even exist. So this is what we're working with here. :) After poking your first hole, fold the card back together and punch through it again to make a hole in the same spot on the other side.

Thread some of your string through...

Tie a knot at one end, figure our how low you want your mini- bunting to hang, and tie your second knot on the other side of the card.

Cut your little baby bunting diamonds, then fold them all over into triangles!

And with a little bit of hot glue, tucking those flags over the string...


A little time consuming for daily use, but kind of fun I thought. If I could go back, I would have written in the card before threading the string through. It's fine though. You can learn from my little mistake. :) 

I think that sending words of encouragement to people is an extremely important part of life. Challenge yourself to write to someone this week! :) 

ALSO, check out this dandy little way to comment on my blog posts via facebook! I would LOVE to hear your thoughts and feedback.. even if it's like "your little flags look janky!" :)

    As soon as I get some free time, I want to try making some of these and send them out as random happy day cards. :)
