Spring Bunting Stationary Tutorial

Sewing cards

Materials Needed:
Scraps of Spring colored fabric
Sewing Machine
Coordinating Thread
Card Stock
Rotary Cutter and Mat
Paper Cutter

1. Grab your fabric and rotary cutter and mat.  You will cut a 1 1/2 inch strip of fabric of each color of fabric you want.

2.  To make the bunting triangles you will cut down diagonally a little over half of an inch.

3.  Then cut the other side a little over half of an inch.  You want the sides to be as equal as possible.

4.  Once all your triangles are cut grab your paper cutter and card stock.  I cut my piece of card 4 1/2 by 8 1/2.  But, you can make your card whatever size you would like.

5.  Fold your card in half and then open it up.

6.  Grab your triangles and situate them on the card where you would like to sew them down.

7. Go to your sewing machine and sew down the triangles.  Go slowly.  Since your triangles are now pinned they will move a little.  You have to kind of play around with them.  (Usually when I sew on paper I use a separate needle since it will dull your needle.)

8.  There you have it!  You are done. Simple and oh so cute!

9.  I made a set of different similar cards.
