How to make music paper bunting!

At a recent Country Living fair in London I was inspired by some gorgeous ordinance survey map paper bunting. Here's my festive alternative: super cheap & easy to put together - makes a cute gift or decoration for Christmas! Happy making!

1. Start with piles of old music paper
    and brown string/ twine.

2. Fold a sheet of music paper in half, and with the fold at the top, cut a double sided 'V' for your bunting shape. You need approx 16 of these for 1 string.                                                3. Cut a piece of string just over 2 metres long and make a
                                                                 loop at each end for hanging. (as above)

 4. Stringing the paper: Start at one end and fold the paper over the string. Glue one inside 'V' with prit-stik (left) and fold sides together firmly.

5. Carry on folding, gluing & sticking at intervals till string of bunting is complete!

6. Ta da!! Here is an example of the completed string, you don't have to stop with one length and can make the  'V's any shape you like - flags look sweet too.

I packaged mine up into clear cello bags (find them on ebay & craft stores - they're usually used for card packaging) with a little label and they're ready to go! Here they're for sale at Green's in Devon:) xx
