I wanted to make some bunting out of old Dr. Seuss books that I had purchased at my local thrift store.
Here's what I did...
I took the books apart and carefully separated each paper.
I folded each page in half and the cut a diagonal line across the page, making a triangle when the page is open.
All my pieces are cut and ready to be sown together.
I purchased some red with white polka dots ribbon at the craft store and began sewing. I laid the page half way on the ribbon and then folded the ribbon over to give it a nice look.
I'm still in the process of trying to decide how I want to hang it in our soon-to-be kiddos room. I wanted to make the room genre neutral, since we are open to taking baby boys or baby girls. I love children's books and I wanted to do something bright and cheerful!
I will also be using this bunting for a different purpose next week. Dr. Seuss' birthday is next week and I thought it would be fun to make our week...Dr. Seuss week! I will have lots of activities I will be sharing throughout the week, so come back and join in on the fun!
