Letterpress Bunting

13 Dec

Here’s a fun little Christmas decor idea — some easy-to-make bunting using vintage images available  from Hello Handmade http://www.etsy.com/shop/hellohandmadepaperie

Last year, Molly and I made a similar bunting for Jessica’s baby shower. We scanned a swatch of the striped fabric that Jess was using for the nursery and then added a letter in Photoshop to each flag saying “Great Expectations” (which we thought was oh so clever given that Jessica and I became friends through the bookclub). It turned out very cute but sadly, I didn’t take a picture of it.  But bunting and papercraft are such a fun and easy way to spiff up the house for Christmas.
