Bittersweet Bunting
by Rachel Burgess

Basic Grey Bittersweet 12x12 patterned papers:
Cherry cordial
Vanilla fudge
Almond toffee
Raspberry cream
Natural twine
Pink and brown inkpads
Sewing machine and coordinated thread/permanent adhesive tape

This was really easy and is a great way of using papers you love to display in the home.
Cut each 12x12 paper down into 4 6x6 squares
Fold each diagonally to create a triangle shape with the pattern on the outside.
Cut a length of twine to the length you want the bunting to be
Lay the string along the fold on the inside of the paper triangle
Either sew or glue the paper triangle together with the twine running through it
Ink the edges of the triangles
