Hello. As the second key holder for the Village Hall, I opened up this morning for the Crafty Club, as Ann was having a day off. We had a small turnout, a few missing, but no matter, we still have a good old natter. I made a start on more felt hearts, this time in orange and green.
I think bunting is quite popular at the moment, so I thought I would make some. I have an old park guide from Legoland when I visited in 2002, fancy keeping this for 14 years, I must be daft. I have lots of memorabilia from places I visited with my last boyfriend, blimey was it that long ago.
The bunting looks quite pretty and it cost virtually nowt.
First of all I cut a strip of sticky back twice the height of the flags, took the backing paper off, and laid out the flags with a length of cord along the top edge. Then folded it over to enclose the paper and the cord. When the two sides were stuck together I trimmed off the excess plastic. I found it quite difficult to work with the plastic, getting it smooth and not wrinkled.
The cord should be as long as you want to make the bunting. Lay it along the crease line, and fold over the rest of the plastic enclosing the flag and cord.
Next I made a Christmas bunting, a good way to use up old Christmas cards. I have used a gold coloured cord here, and laid them closer together. If you are going to do this, the sticky back doesn't stick very well to glitter cards. You could use ribbon instead of cord.
