Behold the wonders of the pretty bunting, easy enough to be made with just paper and twine.
TODAY’S parties are never complete without some cheerful bunting. The trend has seen a surge in recent years, and seems to be going strong still.
For this tutorial, we share how to make simple vintage-inspired bunting by pairing fancy origami paper with elegant doilies and a strand of pompom tape.
Triangular flags are popular, but you can always try other shapes and match them to the party theme along with alphabet cut-out sheets.
Add interest to a plain cake by adorning it with a mini bunting strand with the end coiled around two skewer sticks. Check out our iSnap video for a quirky idea on how you can achieve this with masking tape and twine.
