What beautiful illustrations these are! Nostalgic and timeless, this paper garland will bring a smile to your face every time you look at it!
I have made this paper garland from a lovely used book, "The Tale of Benjamin Bunny" by Beatrix Potter which was originally published in 1904. These are super cute animal pictures, in gorgeous soft colours. It would make a lovely gift for a baby shower, Christening or naming ceremony, or simply to decorate your own nursery, playroom or child's room.
Alternatively, as so many people have fond memories of these characters, it would be the perfect gift for someone who appreciates the work of Beatrix Potter and just loves her characters.
The garland is reversible with pictures on both sides in at least half of the flags, too!
I have added transparent reinforcement holes on one side of each flag. This means that the bunting can be taken down and stored and reused with confidence without any risk of tearing..
There are 9 different flags strung on about 6 feet ( 180 cm) of eco-friendly two tone cotton bakers twine. Your bunting might be slightly different than the one pictured but they are all gorgeous!
Each flag measures 3 1/2" (9 cm) across the top and 3 1/2" (9cm) to the point. If the flags were placed end to end the garland would measure about 2' 6" (75 cm) but the flags slide easily up and down the wool so you can space them out as you like and/or change the order on the twine. You can also flip the whole Benjamin Bunny paper garland over and use the other side, or turn some of the flags to get your favourite selection!
The only thing you can't really do is use it outdoors as it would get damaged if it got wet and it's not a toy so should be kept out of reach of babies and small children.
Nearly all my paper bunting/garlands have been upcycled from pre used and discarded books, card games, postcards, maps and other things that have beautiful illustrations.
As this is a handmade item repurposed from an old book, it may show small signs of age but this just adds to the charm.
Apart from its appeal for babies and children, this Benjamin Bunny paper garland would also be perfect for any special occasion or party and make a lovely eco-friendly gift for someone who just appreciates a bit of nostalgia and beautiful illustrations!
