bunting banner a-making...

i'm still working on organizing my creative space area.  i know it's taking a while but i'm almost there.  i've been wanting to make a bunting banner for my creative space but i just didn't know what i wanted to make it out of.  did i want to sew and make one out of fabric? or did want to make one out of scrapbook paper? i had plenty of both but i also had plenty of home decorating magazines and i thought hey what about pages from my fave mags?
so this afternoon that's exactly what i made my bunting banner out of.  i may have mentioned this in a past post long ago and that is i'm a pack rat when it comes to home decorating magazines.  i save them all...pottery barn, better homes and gardens, southern living, country living, real simple...
i keep them in the living room, in my bedroom, in the family room, in the bathrooms and the guest room. i even dog ear pages that inspire me so that i can refer back to them.  
so here's what i did...i ripped out a few pages from some of them.  made a triangle template and started cutting away.
picked out this yarn from my yarn stash, used my hole puncher to punch two holes in each triangle piece and threaded the yarn through them.
so here's the final bunting banner made from the collection of my magazines.  cute eh?  oh, and yes that's just a little part of the creative space that i'm still slowly and surely re-organizing.
