College Bunting

 How does one photograph bunting? 
The items are small handfuls. Across the room, they just look nice. and small. and indistinguishable.

My youngest niece is at her first year at Claremont and I am sending her first care package. Something fun {including some mad money}.

Niece's school colors are Maroon and gold. Which I tried to enhance. The heart paper below was from a marbling class I took when I was still picture framing. It's been in my stash way too long and looks fun cut up here as hearts.

 I was inspired by a photo Alicia Paulson took for her blog: PosieGetsCozy.
I threw the inspiration photo onto my pinterest board: Embellishments.
It's been over a year since I saved that photo but here was a golden opportunity.

 My  one question for Alicia is how come her circles splay out perfectly with the sections evenly spaced. Mine only behave if you hold them.

No idea how long this ended up being.  I made the little pom poms and spheres yesterday and sewed them onto some bias tape this morning. Then I carefully packed it into a regional rate A box to send off via the post office. Not taking it out now.



  1. You are so nice and generous to make that for your niece. I bet it will bring her lots of joy hanging in her dorm room. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

    1. The text today revolved around the candy in the package.

  2. Cute! Such a nice thing to do for a college freshman.

  3. What fun! Have you tried "pop-up" cards? They would look great with your fancy paper!

  4. I quite agree - photos of bunting in a challenge - yours is looking fab!


I love comments. My heart goes pitter-patter every time there is a new one.
