Easy bunting card

I made this quick bunting card today, ready for Mothers Day next Sunday.  It was super easy to do, and doesn’t need too many paper supplies at all. Bunting Card CollageIngredients

  • Plain piece of card, folded in half to make the base of the whole card
  • Scraps of patterned paper and other bids and bobs to decorate the front of your card
  • Short piece of embroidery floss
  • PVA glue
  • Hole punch
  • Scissors or craft knife

Recipe

  1. Start by decorating the outside of your card (I used a strip of paper and a pre-printed label which I stuck on using sticky pads).
  2. Punch a hole with a hole punch, so it goes through both layers of card (as show below).
