Playing with Papers: A Super Simple Celebration Bunting

Last Friday, I shared "Celebrate!" collage papers for CareFREE Fridays!  (If you haven't already downloaded them, you can get them here.)  For this week's Playing with Papers! I created a super simple (no-sew) celebration bunting...

I started by printing out "Celebrate!" (and more) papers in 5x7 format on cardstock.  (You can see all of the previously offered papers here.)

I cut the paper into triangles.

After I cut the paper, there were lots of scraps...

So I cut them into smaller triangles.

Next, I added letters to the larger triangles.  You can use stencils, stickers, stamps, hand paint them, or do what I did - print your letters from the computer, cut them out, and glue them on.

I finished the bunting by hot gluing the triangles to a decorative ribbon.

Birthdays, Anniversaries, Graduations, and even Everyday Joys are all great reasons to celebrate... Why not do it with a colorful, fun, and easy bunting?

*This step-by-step process is intended for personal use only.*
Please do not sell this image or teach/post this tutorial as your own. 

It is totally okay to use the FREE collage papers to make your own unique images to sell. (I actually think that's pretty cool, and I'd love to see them!)

But, please do not sell re-creations of the image I've made.  (That's not cool.)

Please be sure to check back for more FREE collage papers (and ideas to go with them)!
