MAKE: Mini Jubilee bunting

Mini bunting and Jubilee party invitation

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

Mini bunting

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

Repeat!

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?

    These are so cute :) Reading this entry after reading your FP entry make it abundantly clear why you hold onto the scraps of paper that you do. :D I hope your organization adventure went well!
