Holiday Bunting

Monday, December 9th, 2013

Now that it’s December holiday decorations are going up everywhere.  I wanted to make something easy for my  apartment to make it a little bit more festive.  I love bunting.  It’s simple, classic and easy to store once the holiday’s are over.

I used our solid coloured Nepalese paper for the flags in Green and Red.  They have great bright, vibrant colours that really make the lettering pop.  I cut triangles with a little extra flap at the top to fold over and glue onto the Divine Twine in Cherry.  I taped them to the wall using Washi Tape.

I used the Petite Damask and Petite Fleur (pictured above) as well as the Cameo and Droplet Patterned Nepalese papers for the letters.  I love the petite prints on the brightly coloured papers.  I used different printed papers in the same tabac and white colour so it wasn’t too overwhelming to look at from afar.  I really wanted the red and green holiday colours to shine through.

Come on in and pick up some paper or decorations to make your own space a little bit more festive!

Paper Treats for a Winter Picnic – by Lindsay Zier-Vogel

Sunday, February 27th, 2011

This winter has seemed like it will never end and has made picnic season feel like a figment of my imagination. So I decided to do away with dreams of sundresses and sunshine and replace them with dreams of snowpants and sunshine. Winter picnic time!
paper snowflakes I cut out paper snowflakes and hung them from the bare branches over our picnic blankets and for my intrepid, bundled picnickers, I made lootbags (because who doesn’t love getting a lootbag!!)

For the lootbags, I made paper garlands by sewing up paper circles on my sewing machine, and mini-bunting with paper triangles sewn to ribbon. So easy and so very festive!

I used brown paper lunch bags for the loot and sewed them up with a zig zag stitch across a doily – easy peasy! Also in the lootbags were gold star stickers, kazoos, and gingerbread s’mores and a sprinkle of good ol’ fashioned l-o-v-e.

More winter picnick-y fun here.
