Stay Gold

This golden bunting was a tiny project that ended up taking forever!

First I bought gold origami paper, but it was really bright and brassy and clashed horribly with my gold ribbon. Then I tried painting paper with gold paint, except I watered the paint down too much and the paper buckled. I decided to try ironing it but since I didn’t want to put the hot iron directly on the painted paper I had to go buy some parchment paper to protect the project (try saying that three times fast!). This helped to flatten it out enough, and after spraying the paper with some clear coat I was ready to start cutting triangles. Except… I didn’t. I left it sitting for weeks until I finally got around to finishing it yesterday.
