Christmas Bunting

Have you seen bunting lately?  It is so cute!  I have seen bunting made out of burlap, fabric, and paper.  I love it soooo much I thought I would try my hand at making some.  The first time I used scrapbook paper and it turned out pretty cute...

I think it looks so happy

Now I have gone bunting crazy!  I love it so much I made a Merry Christmas one out of fabric. 

I am glad I made a paper one first.  By doing so I was able to see that I wanted my triangles closer together.

I picked 4 different fabrics out.  I had envisioned only using 2 but I just couldn't decide between them so I went with all of them, lol.

To break up the Merry from the Christmas I embroidered a snowflake.  Have you made any Christmas crafts yet??  If you have feel free to link up to this post with Mr. Linky.  That way we can all see what you have been up to.

I am new to this whole Mr.Linky thing... will you link up with both of the Linky tools?  I want the Mr. Linky where a picture pops up but I am thinking it is not the free one?!  LOL

Thank you for stopping by and Merry Christmas to you!

I have linked this post up with Deck The Halls

The embroidery is a beautiful touch. I love the look of bunting, too, but haven't attempted it yet. It's on a very long must-do list!

I love bunting but am not very crafty. You did an amazing job!

I haven't done anything crafty for your linky but if I do I will be sure to link up. Great idea!

Best wishes,
