Wedding Banner

It is still summer, which is wedding season!

Wedding Bunting

My friend's daughter was getting married and asked me to make a bunting for her reception.  So I wanted to do a tutorial on how to make the bunting.

What you will need:
Scrapbook paper
Banner pattern - enlarged and reduced so you have 3 different sizes
Material for letters if they are vinyl, printed or stenciled
Jute, yarn, or string
Hot glue
Double sided tape

First I made the patterns, then used the largest one to cut out the felt pieces.

When cutting the felt piece, make sure to add about an inch to the end so you will be able to fold it over the string or whatever you are hanging it up with.

Next, use the next medium sized pattern and cut out the next layer.  I used a denim paper for mine, but fabric works just as well.

Then use the smallest pattern and cut out your last layer.  I used a fabric paper, but again, fabric would work just as well.

Next, fasten the layers together.  Hot glue works well on fabric, double sided tape works well on paper.  I found that glue was visible through the white fabric paper, so I used tape instead.

The add the letter on the top layer.  You can either buy or cut a vinyl letter, stencil a letter on the top layer, or print out a letter on the paper before you cut it.

Finally, turn the pieces over and glue the felt over the string, jute or yarn.

I made this one blue to match the wedding colors.

I also made a welcome bunting using the same technique.
