The third Iron Craft challenge of 2011 was "Just Bunt." Since we created something functional last week, this week we went completely for whimsy and created a bunting or garland. What Iron Craft likes about this challenge is that it is ripe with possibilities for different applications & materials.

Heather's favorite submission was the Bunting Pillow by Crafty Dame. Stunning! Crafty Dame is now auctioning it off to benefit the Queensland Flood Relief, so go bid on it!

    This was my first time participating in an Iron Craft challenge and it was so much fun. I loved seeing how everyone interpreted the theme. One of my favorites not listed here was the birdseed bunting. It’s such a fun way to decorate the yard and bring some food for the birds. For my own, I created a simple magnet bunting from decorative paper and adhesive magnet sheets (http://www.hicketypicketyhandmade.com/2011/01/19/magnetic-bunting/). Great job on all of yours!

    I love the variety of shapes and colors of the cupcake bunting! The swirly frosting one is my favorite. I can see using these cupcakes as a wallpaper border in a kitchen nook, too!
