I have a confession to make and it is that I love all things bunting, banners, pennants or flags as they are otherwise known.  These wonderful old pieces of nostalgia look beautiful when printed onto either cardstock, fabric or even a mixture of both.

I am English and bunting as we call it is a very British thing to do! These little flags make me reminisce and think of simpler times and birthday parties.  I have created a number of pretty designs and love to embellish them after they are printed.  I make different layers in paper and fabric and then add all sorts of details like glitter, buttons, lace to name but a few.  I then string them along a piece ribbon with pretty bows and hang them in my home.

I hope that you like looking at these new creations of mine and that you too enjoy a trip down memory lane, thank you so much for dropping by.  Next time we will have tea, scones and cake for afternoon tea!!

You can find all of these designs in my Etsy store YOUR CRAFT EPHEMERA, please click HERE.

I would like to thank CINDY ADKINS for hosting a great LINK PARTY.
