Bunting boom

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.
