Super-easy paper bunting tutorial

This is a really easy tutorial for paper bunting!

Stuff you'll need

2 metres of ribbon
8 different patterend papers
8 different plain papers
Sewing machine
White thread
Plain card



On the plain card, cut out your triangular template.


 Stack the papers up, and draw around the triangle. (I did 2 because I used double sided paper so I wanted to get both patterns in)
 Cut them all out.












 Order the paper triangles, going patterned, plain, patterned, plain etc. Take your ribbon as well.
 With a quarter inch seam allowance, place the first triangle at the beggining of the ribbon, and sew all the way across.
 Slip the next triangle in next to it, and sew. Continue until you have sewn all of the triangles on.  
 Trim the ends to match the angle of the triangle, and cut all the threads.
Sew along the top of the ribbon, and secure with 2 or 3 backwards stitches at either end. Ta-daa!
