News flash: Mother’s Day is less than 2 weeks away! Seriously, where has the time gone? For my fourth box from the 12 Months of Martha I decided to incorporate some of my supplies and make a mother’s day mini scalloped bunting banner for a gorgeous pot of flowers. I’ve seen this done on cakes, so why not a flower arrangement. As I mentioned the other day in my haul video I got some pretty amazing product. I wanted to make something that utilized a lot of the products I received including the new layering punch. I also wanted to make what I like to call a 30-minute craft! I think I did a good job accomplishing both tasks!
- Pink Mambo Yarn
- 12 x 12 paper
- 24 pack of Glitter
- Glittering Glue
- Craft Glue
- Scalloped Circle Layering Punch
- Martha Stewart Crafts™ Fancy Alphabet Stencil Set
- 2 Skewers
- Hot Glue Gun
- Purple Paper
- Sewing Machine
Using the scalloped layering punch I began to punch out 7 scalloped circles. *Make sure you click the left (whole) option
Take your 5 punches and get your sewing machine out… Its time to sew some bunting banner!
Carefully, begin to feed the paper scalloped punches through the sewing machine.
Once the “banner” has been created its time to line up the cardboard stencil to begin creating the glittery “mom”.
Lightly, dab a coat of glittering glue on to the scalloped punch.
Then sprinkle with the colored glitter of your choice.
Carefully pull back the stencil from the scalloped punch. Repeat this two more times.
This is what it looked like once the three letters were complete. I also added a little additional glitter on top of the letters to fill in any glue areas that may not have original had glitter on it.
Use craft glue and dab a little bit of glue on the back of one of the non-attached scalloped punches. Let this rest for a minute or two.
Using a glue gun (don’t judge how nasty my glue gun looks. It just shows I’ve been hard at work), place the bamboo skewer on the scalloped punch and place hot glue on top of the skewer. Then carefully place this on top of the sewn scalloped punch. Repeat this until both ends have skewers attached.
While the bunting banner is drying take 5 feet of the mambo and wrap it around the base of the pot. Make sure to tie a beautiful bow.
Using the scalloped layering punch, click the setting to the right, and take a coordinating piece of paper and begin punching out the multi-layer.
Carefully, place the Mother’s Day Mini Scalloped Bunting Banner into the plant. Then run the outer rings through an adhesive machine. Place the outer rings on the bunting banner. *If the scalloped punches start to twist lightly bend the paper to balance it out to make it face up right.
Display proudly–or give it to your favorite mom!
This project will take you less than 30 minutes to make and cost you very little money if you already have supplies on hand.
