Birthday Bunting Tutorial

I made a birthday bunting for the golfer on his big day. It's made of paper and fabric. Stuff that I already had around the house. Here are some instructions on how to do it:

Step 1. Make a pattern for your scrapbook paper flags. Using this will assure that your flags are all the same size. Mine was about 8 inches long and 8 inches across the top.

Step 2: Find some bias tape that will be long enough to accommodate the letters you will be using.

Step 3: Cut flags out of scrapbook paper.

Step 4: Using a circle cutter, cut a center circle for each flag. I used all different colors for mine.

Step 5: Glue the circles on your flags.

Step 6: Peel backing off of self-stick chipboard letter. I had some around. I bought them a couple of years ago at Target.

Step 7: Center the chipboard letter on the circle

Step 8: Sew flags in between the 2 layers of the bias tape. Make sure to leave an inch or 2 of extra fabric at each end to hang the bunting with.
