We all know that Unicorns are real, so of course they deserve to attend all of the special parties. With this in mind I decided to make a Unicorn Party Set. Consisting of Bunting, A Bag of Unicorn Magic, and the all important Invitation Card. It is a simple design and really easy to make.
You can add a name age or any greeting you like to the bunting. When you have decided what size and how many flags you will need, draw a triangle and cut around it. This flag can then be used as a template to trace around for further flags. You will need to punch a hole in the top corners of each flag.
When Jewel was nicely masked I started creating a rainbow. I swept stonewashed ink diagonally on the left top corner of the flag. I used a brush, but you could use a make up sponge, or an ink blender tool. I followed it by Sunshine Yellow which I slightly overlapped with the blue to create a little green, then a sweep of Raspberry, and lastly a sweep of Purple Twilight. I followed this same sequence on the remainder of the flags.
After removing the mask I added a little colour to Jewel, of course he needed some Unicorn sparkles, so I put some slap it on on his mane and sprinkled generously with Unicorn Sparkles.
I used the wonderful stars stencil on the top part of the flags and secured it with low tac tape to stop it from moving around. I used a spatula to sweep some slap it on into the stencil. I carefully removed the stencil and sprinkled over the Unicorn Sparkles. Remember to Wash the stencil afterwards, before the glue sets.
I die cut Jewels name, but you could use stamps, or stickers to create the name of your choice. I wanted the banner to be colourful and cheerful so I painted the letters in Ruby Slippers Metallic Paint, and used 3D sticky pads to stick each one of them to a flag.
I finished by threading the flags onto some lovely red cord, and hung it up.
I used M&Ms as my "magic mix" but any colourful sweets would be good. I placed them in cellophane and gathered it up around the sweets, and secured it with an elastic band. I used stickles glitter to add little dots of glitter to the cellophane. I finished by adding several colours of organza ribbons around the package and tied on the tag.
I wrote a little Unicorn Magic poem and printed it out. I used a die cut tag around the poem, but you could draw a tag, or find a template online. I stamped Jewel on the back of the tag with a rainbow and sparkly stars the same as I did for the bunting. I then edged the front of the tag with red ink
