Paper bunting is great if you need to make some bunting but you don’t have time to sew some. All you need is some pretty paper and some bakers’ twine.
The paper I used was actually a paper pack that came with a magazine back in the days when I was into card making. The bakers’ twine I bought from Amazon. This is an affiliate link, but it is the stuff I actually used!
Any paper will do, although slightly heavier paper is probably better as it will be easier to get neater results and it will be less likely to tear.
How to Make Paper Bunting
Making the Template
A word of warning first! Check that an A5 template will be the right size for the paper you are using!. I assumed that it was, then found that the paper was slightly smaller than A4 so I had to make another, smaller template.
1. Take a piece of A4 paper and fold it in half widthways. Cut where you have folded. Alternatively you could just start with a piece of A5 paper.
2. Fold the A5 paper in half lengthways.
3. Measure 7 cm up along the fold and mark with a pencil.
5. Cut along the lines you have drawn.
Making the Bunting
Keep going until you have stuck all the flags to the the twine.
Cut the twine, ensuring that you have enough to tie your bunting on.
