So E and B are having a Jubilee picnic!
And the first thing on our long list of things to do is invite people – without falling back on Facebook events
The invites themselves have been made from a mixture of old newspapers and wrapping paper (including a specially bought royal themed number, from The Tokenhouse in Nottingham)
But to make things a little more special and get people in the mood for celebrations, I decided to tuck a mini string of bunting into each envelope
You will need…
- Bright coloured paper (ideally double-sided – although I just stuck two pieces back-to-back)
- Jewellery thread (or fine ribbon)
- Double-sided tape
Firstly you need to make a template so all your flags are the same size (see the gallery for the easiest way to do this)
Use this as a guide to cut out your flags – I think 10 is a good number for a decent string – but you could even get away with as few as five
Next, fold the paper over the thread to make a triangle and use a very small strip of double-sided sticky tape to secure
Now I just need to work on my wording for the invitations… and give them out of course!
What Jubilee plans do you have? Any ideas to share?
