Next weekend, we’re hosting a night owl slumber party, so I’m in full party prep mode. Sunday’s project was making easy party party bunting. I used patterned papers from the Love the Day. This is a really easy and quick way to get a little more out of your printables set.
- Patterned paper, enlarged to 11 x 17
- Paper trimmer
- Double-sided tape
- Thick glue dots
- 5/8″ grosgrain ribbon
2 – Trim any remaining white edge from each paper strip.
3 – Decide on the arrangement of your patterns. I wanted to vary the widths of my strips, as well as the mix of solids and patterns.
4 – Decide how much ribbon you need and set that amount of ribbon aside for the left side of the bunting.
5 – Gently fold over each strip of paper. You want to carefully match the sides and ends so the white underside of the paper doesn’t show later.
6 – Crease the fold.
7 – Place a glue dot just under the crease.
8 – Put the ribbon on the glue dot, as close to the crease as possible.
10 – For the narrow strips, cut a glue dot in half.
11 – Use about 2″ of double-sided tape so adhere both sides of the paper strip together.
12 – Place the paper strips about half an inch apart from each other.
13 – Tie the left side of the bunting to area where you want it.
14 – Tie the right side of the bunting and then trim your ribbon. (This way you won’t accidentally cut the ribbon too short.)
And here’s your finished bunting!
