About

Recycled bunting banners, with vintage fiber tassels, made with love!

I'm Shay, a crafty mom who lives for upcycling! Creating things is part of my DNA, and I get the most joy out of a few hours alone crafting! My wish is to share some of that crafty goodness with you, and bring something created with love into your life. If you have an idea for a specific customization please send me a message and I will make it my mission!

About my materials:

I make it a priority to avoid creating waste as much as possible during my creative process, and I strive to use materials that are recycled, thrifted, and sustainable. Here is a little bit about the materials I work with to create these beautiful banners:

Recycled kraft food packaging- these are boxes used in food storage and packaging. Things like cereal boxes, granola bar boxes, frozen pizza boxes, are all good examples. These boxes are made at least in part from recycled post-consumer content, so before they get recycled again, I give them a new life. The color of the kraft cardstock varies, depending on the packaging, and ranges from a neutral muted grey, to a warm and textured brown, and many different shades in between. I have tried to edit my product photos as close to the actual color as possible, so you get an idea of the shade of kraft used for each banner. If you have a preference for a shade of kraft for your custom banner, please let me know, and I will do my best to accommodate it.

Natural textured jute twine- Jute is one of those amazing natural resources, and the only thing I buy "new" to create my banners. It is unbleached and sustainable, grown using minimal pesticides and insecticides, and is irrigated with mostly rain water. Take that, cotton! In addition, jute is completely biodegradable, and adds a naturally warm and rustic texture element to my banner designs. It can be easily knotted if you would like to tie your banner up to attach it to your walls, but also grips to tape really well, for a less permanent solution.

Vintage mixed fibers- tassels are nothing new... well, mine are, anyways! I use 100% upcycled and thrifted fibers in my tassels. These can come in many forms: leftover yarn from a half finished sweater, an old roll of 80's ribbon, vintage lace still in the package, old saris in gorgeous vibrant colors, unused wool from a 70's tapestry kit, tulle cut from an old wedding veil, and the list goes on. I source these delicious fibers from thrift stores and charity shops, so money spent on them goes to a good cause. I'm always looking to add to my ever growing fiber stash, collecting fibers in every color and texture!
