For Edward’s most recent birthday I wanted to try an idea I have had ‘on the back burner’ for a while and hopefully one which would be attractive to a three year old for their bedroom.
As with the other two bunting sets, my trusty Silhouette Cameo has come into its own.
The pennants are based on a train engine and its carriages – these were formed from fairly simple shapes cut in a variety of child-friendly colours; the different coloured layers were then stuck together to create each pennant.
The train had the required number of carriages to each carry a letter of Edward’s name.
Letters were cut from black card in a very simple font with a background offset in a contrasting colour to aid clarity; the letters were stuck to their respective offsets and then to the correct carriage.
The engine and its carriages were then ‘strung’ on a piece of strong nylon cord to form the train.
By changing the number of carriages any name can, and will, be produced.
