{Give Thanks} Fall Bunting

So, I've never made a bunting before, heck, I didn't even know what that was up until a few weeks ago! None the less, I think they're pretty cute for parties, weddings, photography, or holidays! I decided to give it a go and make one for our mantle for Fall!

For this type of bunting you will need scrap book paper, which you can get from Hobby Lobby for 59 cents each, or cheaper if you catch them on sale! You will also need, a glue stick, twine, scissors, and Mod Podge.

I started by cutting my primary paper (the orange polka dot one) in to sheets of 8 x 10 so I could feed them through the printer. Next, create a template triangle out of something sturdy like cardboard. Print out your letters onto you scrap book paper and use your template to trace your shape. A helpful hint, you can hold your printed paper up to a window while holding your template behind it so that it creates a shadowbox effect so you know exactly where to trace your template. Cut out your triangles and glue them onto larger triangles. You don't have to do this step, but I like having a secondary color. Next, I created an outline between my two triangles by gluing twine on the border with my Mod Podge. Last, create small holes in your triangles and weave your twine through to make your hanging strands.

Pretty easy right??
Next on the agenda, a "Just Married" bunting for my Sisters wedding next month!! Ahhh!
Happy Crafting everyone!

  23. I was a HIV-AIDS patient and I got it from cheating on my wife. It was sort of a payback but a week later I was told by a friend that the person who I cheated with had the HIV-AIDS virus and did not tell me. I was so stupid by not using a condom I thought since he was an old school friend he was trustworthy. But I was wrong. I cried and cried. Two days later, I got a phone call from my friend and he told me about a person who is known by another friend, who can help me. I could not let my wife know what I was going through. I finally got his email address: and I emailed this man my story and he replied me immediately saying i should be calm and told me that everything will be OK. I could not come to terms with what I was hearing but then I concluded it did not matter because I was so broken I just needed help. I was going out of my mind literally. I was confused with what he was telling me, but I listened. He told me about some materials i need to buy that he needed to cast the spell and I said OK. I bought the materials to him, I sent down my picture to him and my positive result sheet and he replied me that i am going to be negative under 3days. I message Him every 2hours for 2day and I knew he thought that I was crazy but I did care I needed a shoulder. Behold, the third day he messaged me i should go for a test that i will be negative. My marriage could be broken because of a stupid mistake and my life was on the line. I remembered when I was going to get the results of my re-test I called him up again and told him that I was going to get my results today and his reply was “so" and that everything will be as he explained. I knew then that he was getting tired of me calling him, maybe I was wrong. Well I got my results and the first person I called was him - again. As he said hello I started to cry and cry. I could not believe it. I was given a second chance in life.This man is a great spiritual HIV/AIDS healer, his healing spell on aids healing is very powerful .please brothers and sister, contact Dr Ose
