Simple Paper Flag Bunting

Craft:

My pre-spring clean continues this week. Last week I found an old mirror that I quickly updated with a coat of paint - this week I dug up a bag of left over card I had from a project that just didn't turn out how I hoped (so I shelved it).

Anyway, I'm always looking for ways to brighten up my home. I'm waiting to start renovating so anything that feels like a little step towards my new home is welcome!

This is a really simple project and will reflect Em and my ongoing love of bunting - in a million ways!

For this project you will need:

  • various colours of cardboard (or paper sheets would work just as well)
  • glue
  • string, wool, or ribbon
  • scissors
Simply cut the card into 1 inch wide strips and approximately 5 inches in length. 

Next fold each strip length ways.

Freehand cut a triangle out of each end of the card.


Cut a length of your chosen string, wool or ribbon.

Sit each folded card over the string and secure with a dab of glue (I weighted mine down overnight just to make sure they stuck).


Hang your bunting along a wall, over a mirror or across a window for some excitement!


Happy crafting!
