FESTIVE PAPER BUNTING






As one of the activities for our advent calendar, we made paper bunting the other day. As it so happens, later that afternoon I went to see a friend, Bianca, from The Beige Larder, and she was selling larger flag-style bunting she had made for Hey! Market. It proved to be the perfect partner for our smaller version.

Here's how we made our paper bunting.

YOU WILL NEED
Paper (we used cardboard as it was to hand, but paper would be a little easier to fold and glue)
Pencil
Ruler
Scissors
Twine
Craft glue
Paintbrush
Tape (to hang)

HOW TO MAKE PAPER BUNTING
Step 1
On a piece of paper or card mark divisions 3cm apart apart on the top end of your paper and 6cm apart on the sides. Join the markings to create a diamond pattern.

Step 2
Fold diamonds in half, ensuring pencil markings are on the inner side of the paper/card.

Step 3
Place join over top of twine and glue two halves together. Press firmly to help adhere. Once dry, you're ready to hang.
