It’s time for falling leaves, pumpkin everything, and sweaters. It’s AUTUMN! And to celebrate the beginning of my favorite season, I created this awesome bunting using the White Chalkboard card stock, which I am loving.
Autumn Bunting Supplies:
- White Chalk Core Cardstock
- Burlap Ribbon
- Suede Cord in Ivory
- Darice Autumn Leaves
- Zip Dry Paper Glue
- Hole Punch
- Alphabet Stamps
- VersaMark Watermark Pad
- Embossing Powder - White
- Heat Gun or Hairdryer
Step 1: Cut your Chalk Core card stock into six 4″ x 6″ pieces. Then cut a notch out of the bottom of each piece.
Step 2: Lightly sand the surface of each piece for a scratched appearance and more heavily sand the edges.
Step 3: Stamp the letters to spell “Autumn” on each of the card stock pieces using VersaMark ink, and emboss using an Ivory embossing powder.
Step 4: Punch holes in the upper corners of all the card stock pieces. Also punch a hole in the center of six leaves.
Step 5: Glue a length of burlap ribbon to the back of each card stock piece using Zip Dry, and let dry.
Step 6: Add your card stock pennants to about 6′ of Ivory suede cord.
Now just hang it up and enjoy!
