So yesterday we received a parcel containing new dishes for our restaurant. My son enjoyed jumping on the bubble wrap for a bit. (Isn't cheap fun great?!)
I don't know why, but I've always loved corrugated cardboard so when I saw it in the box I knew I wanted it. My husband tried throwing them out, but I immediately grabbed them back knowing I would probably make something with them someday.
Today I saw the little box containing the cardboard sitting on the table still not put away and happened to glance at the wall which still has nails in it from the advent calendar that I made this year, so I decided I would make a valentine's Day bunting to go on it. I'm pretty pleased with the way it turned out.
Sorry, the lighting in our place is atrocious, it looks way better in person!
It's simple enough that it really doesn't require a tutorial, but I'll tell you what I did.
First I traced a heart shaped cookie cutter on the backside and cut them out. Half of the hearts I painted completely red using acrylic paint and the other ones I just painted around the edges so they would pop a bit against my wall.
I then free handed some lettering onto more corrugated cardboard and hot-glued it on. I embellished the others with buttons and ribbon. I then glued each heart onto a piece of jute and hung. Done.
What do you think?
