How to Make...Summer Bunting Wedding Stationery


I know it’s the middle of winter as we post this design guide. But many of you will be busy planning spring and summer weddings (and hoping for awesome weather).
When I think about summer weddings, nothing captures the mood quite like bunting. It conjures up the idea of garden parties, pimms and lemonade and croquet and cocktails on the lawn!
So to get you in the mood for your Spring or Summer wedding, we wanted to show off this cute design for you to copy at home. The great thing about this design is that because it’s all mix and match, you can use different papers and different colours to suit the mood of your day.



This range is a little bit fiddly to make but on the plus size, it’s a very low cost range to reproduce.
Whilst I used a sizzix machine to make the bunting, if you make a cardboard template, you can easily hand cut the bunting triangles yourself.

So Here Are The Instructions……


FLAT INVITATION

You Will Need:

1/2 sheet of pearlised blush pink card  (click here)
1/2 sheet of buttermilk polka paper  (click here)
offcuts of Beatrice linen  (click here)
offcuts of Blossom Blue Paper  (click here)
offcuts of Blossom Pink Paper  (click here)
offcuts of white A4 card  (click here)

 
You Will Also Need:
 
Pink hemp string
Paper Trimmer
Tape Runner or double sided tape  (click here)
Glue Gun  (click here)
Mini Mounting pads or foam padsScissors

We've used the font "MY UNDERWOOD"

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Use your paper trimmer to cut a piece of Precious Pink Card 14.5 x 14.5cm
  2. Print your wording on to the Buttermilk Polka Linen Paper and cut down to size. The finished size should be 14cm x 14cm with your wording set to the bottom half of the page. You should be able to fit 2 wording panels on to each sheet.
  3. Use double sided tape to stick the wording panel on to the Precious Pink Card.
  4. Using the font “My Underwood”, print your initials and “&” on to a sheet of white card. Leave a gap between them so that you can cut them out. Once printed, cut around them in a square shape. It doesn’t matter if the squares are not even as this adds to the charm. Use mini mounting pads to stick the letters in to place at the top centre of the card. The mini mounting pads will give the letters a raised finish.
  5. Cut out 4 or more pieces of bunting (depending on the size you have chosen). Arrange them so that they curve across the front of the card. Once you are happy with how they are placed, you can then use your double sided tape to stick them in to place.
  6. As a nice finishing touch, I have added some pink hemp cord. This is quite a fiddle so if you don’t fancy doing that, you can achieve a similar effect by using a fine liner to draw across the top of the bunting.
  7. To use the hemp cord, tie a knot in one end. Use your glue gun to stick the knot in to place at the edge of the card. Carefully use the glue gun to stick along the edge of the cord and press in to place at the top of the bunting. Once you reach the opposite side of the card, tie another knot as close as you can to the edge of the card and cut off any loose ends. Use the glue gun to secure it.
