Bunting Happy Birthday Card

I made this card for a dear family friend whose birthday is this month. Of course, me being me, I am behind on everything and I sent out her present a week late, but I hope she will forgive me. Since spring is in the air I wanted to make something bright and cheery so I thought a simple card decorated with bunting would be fun.

For the base of the card I used white cardstock with a faded lined paper design on it. To make the bunting I made a little template out of chipboard and then cut out the flags from some brightly colored origami paper I bought at a hyaku-en shop (Japanese version of a dollar store). I folded the tabs on the flags over some black and white string and taped them to secure them. Once I had all the flags attached to the string, I mounted them on the card with foam tape to give the flags a little dimension. I coated the back of the remaining string with craft glue, arranged the string in loops and then trimmed the excess off once the glue had dried. To finish off the card I wrote "Happy Birthday" on the flags.

Happy Birthday, Georgene! You are such a special part of my life and I am so lucky that you adopted me as part of your family.
