craft: guirlandes / garlands

this week end i managed to squeeze in some quick crafting, just enough time to make these 'guirlandes' (garland? bunting?). i first saw them on the blog 'les contours du silence' (here), a blog i particularly like reading, it's full of beautiful photos of close ups and patterns. when i saw these guirlandes, i knew i had to make some, and as it happened it was little stella's birthday this weekend, so i had an excuse (and a deadline) to make some. they are really easy to make, all you need is some craft paper scissors, some nice card/paper, and a sewing machine. easy. and fun.





have a peek our creative spaces to see some awesome craft.
