DIY- Bunting

What you will need: 
-coloured string/cord of your choice  
-pen or pencil 
-hole punch  
-patterned card or fabric (I got mine from the range) 
-a piece of paper or card


01.) On your piece of paper or card, go around the edge of  your patterned card or fabric so that you have the outline of it. Then using your ruler, measure how long the edge of patterned card is and find the middle of it (in my case, my card was 15cm long so the middle would be 7.5cm) and mark it on your piece of paper.

02.) Then using your mark as a guide, draw a straight line down the middle. Using a ruler, connect the end of your line to the top two corners to form a triangle shape.

03.) Cut out your triangle and hole punch near the top. This is your template for all your pieces of bunting.

04.) Place your template on your piece of card or fabric and trace around it. (TIP: turn the card over and trace the outline on the back as this stops you seeing the pencil line) Then follow the steps as before: cut out your triangle and hole punch it near the top. Then repeat for a different patterned card or fabric until you have reached your desired number of triangles.

05.) To join your pieces of bunting together, you need to grab your string or cord (I didn't cut mine until the very end, when I had all my pieces of bunting on it, so just reeled it off it's spinney-thing < my brilliant piece of description, but hopefully you understand what I mean?) and thread it through the first hole and then pull it across and thread it through the second hole (through the back to the front and then the front to the back). Then pull quite a lot of the string through so you can add another piece of bunting, then repeat the steps again until you have added all of your pieces of bunting and yours should begin to look a little something like mine in the picture below.  Once you've added all the bunting, you can now cut the string (I'd leave about 15cm at each end so you can hang up your bunting) and you're done.

Hopefully, you all enjoyed the tutorial and understood what was happening, I'm not the best at explaining things, so if you need any extra help just ask in the comments:) I'd love to see how yours turned out.


Hello lovelies, hope you're all doing well. It feels odd to actually sit down and write a proper post as I haven't done one in so long but I have some exciting news to share with you lovely lot: I'M COMING BACK TO BLOGGING, WOO. Now some of you might be like "you never even left" which is true; I never officially said "I'm not going to blog any more" however, in the last six months I've only posted four times,which was due to a number of issues: I had no laptop from which to blog (which made things just a tad difficult;D), school and all my exams and a serious case of writer's block.

However, for my birthday, my parent's bought me a new laptop which eliminates problem number one. Also on my birthday, I had my last exam (woo!) so now I have 10 weeks off school, which means a lot of extra time for blogging, so here I am. I already have a couple of posts lined up for you, including a DIY and a haul,  but if you have anything you want to see, tell me in the comments and I'll try my hardest to get that up for you:) I look forward to getting this blog up and running again.

Motivational Mondays

Hello lovelies, hope you're all doing well. It looks like it's that time of the week again: MONDAY IS UPON US. However, never fear, motivational Monday posts are here.

This week's quote is "A ship in harbour is safe, but that is not why ships are built". Now grab your swimming goggles and flippers, we're going to read deeper into this...

Many of us, including myself, like to stay in our comfort zones with our routines, friends, social activities and whatnot. Whilst there is nothing wrong with that, sometimes  it's good to push yourself and see what comes of it. Like the ship, we can stay doing what we already do and play it safe but if we never leave our "harbour" we will never discover or experience anything new or exciting and where's the fun in that?;D

I'm going off on a tangent now but there's another quote that says something like "you should do something that scares you everyday" and I think these two quotes go really  well together. Basically, step out of your comfort zone every now and then and see what happens. (Unless it's something like jumping out of an aeroplane without a parachute because you will most probably die and that's not good;D).

A little update: Here I go again, apologizing again for my awful blogging skills as I've only posted three times this year *cue tutting* however, I am really sorry, can you forgive me? Anyway, I just wanted to say thank you to you lovely lot, for sticking around and saying such nice things in the comments, it really has made me smile. I'm still laptop-less so I can't promise regular posting yet (boo!), but now that I'm a working 'gal, I should hopefully be able to buy myself one soon.

In other news, IT'S MY BIRTHDAY IN TWO WEEKS TODAY! I'm not excited or anything... I've also left school now, well until sixth form in September, which means I'm currently on "study leave" *cough someone please make me study, I'm going to fail cough* yay. Anyway I need to revise for my math's exam tomorrow or else I really am going to fail so thank you for reading all my ramblings and I hope to speak to you all soon!
