A little twine and beautiful paper...



I purchased this beautiful Cavallini & Co paper awhile back...finally I got around to making some bunting with it today. I used a hole punch, twine and carefully cut the paper into squares. Once the paper was cut I simply threaded the twine through the holes to create a rather cheap and cheerful ABC bunting. I really love this paper...it has such a nostalgic and happy feel to it. I have a second piece which I think I will make into magnetic cards for the new magnetic easel. This was a quick and easy craft activity that took approximately 25 minutes...and that is with my lovely little helper assisting me.



You can never have to much bunting...x

Sarah,
In reply to your shortbread question: The biscuits on my header are lemon shortbreads. I've got a busy few days coming up before I fly unexpectedly to London, but will post the recipe when I get back for you.
