If tonight’s three challenges are all about my three favourite design motifs, any guesses on what the final trend would be? Hopefully all those pretty pictures give you a clue.

And of course, before we go any further, we need to call the party DJ back to action and request another rockin’ tune.

bunting in progress

I love very simple bunting. These little triangles became bunting for our wedding that now appears anywhere I can put it: above the bed in the guest room, on the Christmas tree, and across my table whenever I am a vendor at a craft show! No hemming at all, and I actually think it looks sweeter with age and a bit of fray around the edges.

And now bunting is everywhere in crafting land too! I can only applaud this. You can see more in the video I posted this week.

Your 10pm challenge, should you choose to accept it, is to create something – anything- with bunting! Make something, take a picture and upload it to your blog or a page gallery. Then leave a comment on this post to enter!

One project will be randomly chosen to win a prize package filled with bunting themed scrapbook supplies. You can enter until 6am UK time on Monday 19th April.


PS: This is our final challenge for Friday night — challenges start again at 8am tomorrow morning! But you can enter all challenges until Monday morning so you can pick and choose your favourites to enter! See you tomorrow! Party on!

  2. QSOgirl Says:

    May we combine challenges and enter one project into multiple categories?

    Your prompts have my juices flowing, thanks!!

  3. Katharina Says:

    I JUST DID MY VERY FIRST BUNTING-LO on Saturday – and I hope it’s ok to throw it in anyway! (;

    And in February I did that,too, and the recipient (my MIL) LOVED it!!!

    Lovely greetings – Katharina (;

    Here’s my take on the challenge:

  5. Lizzie Says:

    Ahh… I’m not sure if this counts… I have been making bunting fit to bust recently! I’m in the middle of a commission book, which is a photo album for baby pictures. I’ve put bunting all over it… but I can’t post the pics til I’ve sent it off to the new owner!!!
    Yesterday I did post about the paper bunting and flowers I had made on Wednesday night.. I put them in my shop though, so no page with these yet.
    Arrrghh.. so busy with other stuff, no time for my own scrapping… and all that lovely bunting to play with!

  6. Peggy Says:

    Can’t say as I’m wild about the whole banners & bunting craze, but I need an anniversary card for my spousal unit, so here ‘tis.

  7. alissa Says:

    another fave of mine, too.
    all about the bunting, shim. :)

  8. Jacqui Vale Says:

    I love bunting too and have plans to make plenty to adorn our house! I’m not sure if these count but here are two recent bunting projects that I have completed (although I think a camera that takes pictures with a true-to-life colour might help).

  9. Tracy Fox Says:

    This was a challenge for me for sure, thank you.

    Here it is

  10. Jennifer Says:

    I’ve been wanting to try bunting for a while so thanks for the nudge shimelle! Here’s my layout:

  11. Mel Says:

    I immediately had about 10 different ideas using bunting, but as I also needed sleep I went with a quick card for now – you can see it on this post: (And I look forward to trying the other ideas when I have a bit more time!)

  12. wendy Says:

    my first ever attempt at bunting :O)

  20. Hazel Says:

    Bunting feels a little old fashioned to me (in a good way) so I’ve used it with an old photo of my late Nanna and Grandad’s wedding.

  21. Roo Says:

    Loving the bunting craze. Just loving it!!

  30. Katy Says:

    I love bunting and have plans to make some to put up in my new amazing shelves, which have a huge gap for a widescreen tv – I don’t have one of those, just a teeny digital radio and a big empty space! I made a layout straddling tomorrow’s cosmo challenge and this one too, if that’s allowed. :o) It is blogged here

  31. Ruth Says:

    My bunting was my personal banner to remind me to party this weekend.. it is posted in the gallery

  32. EllenC Says:

    I chose to add the bunting to my latest art journal for this challenge – never used it before, but I think it’s my new love!

  33. Alix Says:

    i love love love bunting…we had hundreds of metres of it at our wedding…and it was the prettiest thing ever :0)
    my bunting for this challenge is here

  34. Judi Says:

    Had fun with this. I’ve made big birthday banners before but not teensy ones to put on a LO. I’m now covered in glitter. LOL. Apologies for the rubbish scan.

  35. luluuk Says:

  36. Nicole Says:

    I don’t quite understand the bunting craze yet but I still had fun creating this layout – thank you!
    Happy Birthday

  37. NancyLee Says:

    Banners or bunting, I am one big fan. Here’s my share, a card for a very special boy, Max.

  38. NancyLee Says:
