Long renders = crafting time!

Triangles for some bunting I'm going to attempt... Working on a valentine (or two)

During a very long render at work yesterday, I cut up some triangles so that when I got home, I could make pretty little Valentine bunting AND turned two paper straws into arrows!  I love them so much!  I'm trying to find a way to mount them around the house...

For the bunting, I arranged the triangles in a pretty color order, wrote out scripty letters and sewed them together using regular thread.  I think I might opt for 2-3 strands of embroidery floss for the next set.  I will also try not to watch Teen Wolf while I do this because I kept stabbing my fingers!  If you watch the show, I'm really worried about Stiles.  His condition (not knowing whether you're asleep and dreaming or awake in real life) really freaks me out.  Like, A LOT.  If you don't watch the show, please disregard that last part...

For the arrows, I looked at the photo here and made my own version with black construction paper.  It's so easy!  I think I might do this to all my things - pencils, pens, plastic straws...

Long renders also mean I can attempt to follow along with Omiyage Blogs and their Kirigami Project!
Mine don't look *quite* the same but it's still a lot of fun!  Also - I need to sharpen my work scissors because the jagged edges are NOT cute!

Kirigami practice

Happy Wednesday!
