Crafty Boots Challenge: Good Luck!

Hey all!!! As you may know - for my full time job i'm a teacher - so this fortnights Crafty Boots Challenge is completely relevant to me! This week my AS students will be sitting their first exam!! AAAAAAAGGGGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHH! And of course i want to wish them the best of luck. So for this challenge i created some Good Luck bunting to hang in my classroom!!! And i made it all using my trusty 'Perfect Pennants Die' - bunting made nice and quickly with a roll of the 'Big Shot'!!:

I went with a 'Regal Rose', 'Melon Mambo', 'Rich Razzleberry' and 'Old Olive' colour combo. Chopping the large triangles out of cardstock using the 'Perfect Pennants Die' and the 'Big shot'. Then smaller triangles from a range of stripey and polkadot 'Brights DSP'. The letters have been stamped from the coordinating inks onto 'Whisper White' card using the brilliant 'Broadsheet Alphabets' stampset:

I punched these out and mounted them onto the bunting using a range of punches: '1 1/4" Circle Punch', '1-3/8" Circle Punch', '1-3/$" Circle Punch', 'Scallop Circle Punch' and the 'Perfect Pennant Die'. Here's close ups of each of the individual bunting triangles:

To finish off the card i punched some holes in each corner of the triangle and threaded through some 'Old Olive' 'Satin Ribbon'.

I'm really please with how this bunting has worked out and really do wish my students the best of luck with their exams! Why not enter the crafty boots challenge yourself! I look forward to seeing your entries!

  1. I want bunting like this for my craft room!! LOL It's much prettier than the bunting I once made. Next time I make bunting I will be sure to punch holes for the ribbon like you have - I stuck mine on with DST and the flags all fell off one by one!!!

    Love this and hope it brings good luck to your students! xxx
