Bunting from Scrapbook Paper
I told my husband I was making some bunting for a decoration and he looked at me like I was crazy. I tried describing it as a bunch of pennants (like sports team pennants) on a string… He still had no clue what I was talking about. I whipped out my phone and googled it for him but still didn’t get the response I was looking for. I tried telling my mom and sister and they also had no clue what I was talking about either. I used my phone again and were all finally on the same page. I guess bunting is not a familiar term. To me it is a nicer way of saying triangle garland!
First select an assortment of papers 12×12. Using a ruler mark the center of each side of the back of your paper. Using a straight edge connect the dots. First make a line through two of the center dots visually cutting the paper in half. Keep in mind the pattern on the front and your desired result. Using a straight edge draw a line from one center dot to one of the opposite corners as shown.
Cut along lines and line up according to desired pattern. I used 6 different papers and lined them in a repeating pattern. Hole punch each triangle in two spots along the top (shortest edge) of the triangle.
Use about 30 feet of cotton twisted cord with about an inch space between each triangle. I was gentle not to move the cord too much during the hanging process but you may need to secure the cord to the paper with a piece clear tape.
Hang in desired place with thumb tacks or staples for long-term. Use tape for short-term. Let me know if you have any suggestions in the comments below!
