Fall'ing in Love with Gypsy!


There is a distinct chill in the air lately. All the leaves have disapeared and its time when those cosy nights of hot chocolate and autumnal colours all come into play.I thought it would be a nice idea to bridge the gap between the Halloween and Christmas decorations with a little Fall Welcome banner.

Each point of bunting is 5x6 inches, based with the Curry patterned paper there is little need to do any stamping on this paper as its so decorative.

Onto the background i placed the Combo Sticker swirls and a strip of both the Gypsy Lace (edged with the MS lace heart punch) and a thinner strip of chocolate double dot cardstock (edged with the MS double dot punch).

Each letter of welcome was backed onto a scallop heart punch which is edged in chocolate ink - this makes it more 3d without the added weight of thick chipboard.
Brads were placed in the centre of flowers for the end bunting pieces and attached direct. Likewise with the iCandy jewels at the bottom of each point.

I cropodile punched a hole at both ends of each bunting piece and slotted ribbon through to join it all together, leaving a loop at each end ready to hang.

I hope you have fun making your own bunting and remember, these can be personalised any way you like! Ideal for bedroom notices, parties and general shabby chic style home decoration.
