How To Use This Blank Bunting Template
This blank bunting template is super-easy to use. Just print the template onto scrap paper to use to draw around onto card or fabric. However another quick way to do this is to print directly onto decorative paper. You can use scrapbook paper for a quick and easy finish. One of the benefits of using scrapbook paper is that the packs often contain a range of complementary colored and patterned paper, which will create a great looking set of bunting with little extra effort. Keep a look out for double sided scrapbook paper so that the bunting looks great from any angle.
To finish the bunting punch holes in the top corners and thread the bunting onto string or ribbon or fold the top edge of the bunting over and use tape or glue to adhere the bunting into place.
Alternatively, transfer the bunting template onto a piece of cardstock. The back of a cereal packet or similar recycled card will work well. This will be sturdy enough to use over and over again. Simply store the bunting template somewhere where you’ll find it again (if you have a craft room like mine then you’ll know that this isn’t always as easy as it sounds 😉 ), and you’ll have it on hand to create decorations for the next party or celebration.
If you are going to create fabric bunting, you can cut bunting shapes from odds and ends of fabric and attach them to a piece of ribbon or cord. If you are in a hurry then just cutting and attaching the bunting will be a quick way to finish this. On the other hand, if you want to make fabric bunting which will last during many celebrations and festivities, you may want to cut two pieces of fabric and stitch them together as in the photo above. This tutorial shows how to make fabric bunting with little bobble textured sides. Cute!
