Display ideas at the end of the tutorial.

Supplies:

  • stiff paper for rosettes
  • red & green paper for the strawberries
  • red & green paper for the bunting flags
  • adhesive(s) for the strawberries
  • ribbon or string (for securing the rosettes)
  • twine
  • hole punch
  • scissors (& maybe a pencil with an eraser)
  • optional: cutting machine & accessories (such as Cricut...I used the "Simply Charmed" & "Ribbons & Rosettes" cartridges

Step 1: Rosettes

Make your rosettes.

The written directions are below, but this video on The Fisch Life IGTV channel might help too.

  • I used a Cricut to cut out the pieces, but you could also cut them out by hand. Don't rush out & buy one just for this.
  • If you end up with different sizes like I did (I wanted to get use out of the paper & there wasn't quite enough on the sheet, plus I guess I input different sizes), don't worry! You fix it.
  • If your design has little holes, save those holes as coordinating confetti for the party! You can also cut small pieces form little scraps.
  • Fold the pieces accordion-style.
  • Glue the pieces together in a strip. Here's where it gets fixed if you have different sized pieces. Just line up the outside/top/decorative edges when you glue them together. The center is getting covered with a strawberry, so it's ok if that part's uneven.
  • Hole punch some of the inside/bottom folds & thread the ribbon or string through them.
  • Glue the beginning & end of the rosette together to make it into a circle shape.
  • Tighten & tie the ribbon in the back. You might need to add extra holes &/or ribbon.

Step 2: Bunting

Now to the bunting/garland part!

  • Cut out your bunting triangles. I used some that were already triangle-shaped & just tore them out of the booklet. Consider looking through Christmas packets; you might find some red, green, &/or white patterns that aren't Christmas-specific.
  • Punch a hole in each of the "top" corners of triangles. I used a heart-shaped hole punch, because that's what was convenient. :)
  • Don't forget to save the punched out holes for confetti!
  • Decide how you want the bunting to be laid out.
  • Thread the twine through the holes, adjusting as necessary.

There might be some instructions in this part that are a little confusing. This video might help or feel free to ask questions in the comments section of this tutorial.

Step 3: Display & Party

Now all that's left to do is display you decoration!

Here are some ideas:

  • on a wall, with a rosette at each end of the bunting
  • on a corkboard
  • in a tree or bush
  • on the front of the dessert table
  • in a photo booth

How would you display this bunting?
