How to Make Paper Bunting

It's that time again, rain, rain, rain which in my house means "Get your Craft On".  My son  loves to get crafty, especially if scissors and strings are involved.  Don't worry, he has the rounded tip safety scissors and I supervise him at all times.  Since this craft had a lot of cutting, I did the cutting for him and he did everything else.
For this project you will need, 
construction paper or any pretty printed or colored paper you have on hand,  Scissors, Yarn the length you wish, Small hole punch, and Crayons or markers.


1-Create a triangle template to the desired size.

2- Trace a triangle template unto the construction paper.  Bend the top half of each flag and then trim the sides, so they match the triangles edges.   Now you will have triangular shaped paper.

3- Next take the hole puncher and punch holes on each corner on the short flat side of the triangle(you should have only two holes per triangle).  Let your little one draw on the triangles or write words, their names etc...

4-  After all the triangles have their holes and have been decorated by your child/children, thread the string through one hole then the other.  Start inserting each triangle through the string.  In order to keep it in place you may use scotch tape to stick the string to the paper.  Little man loved inserting the triangles and when he saw what the outcome was, he was thrilled.  He is so happy to have done this all on his own.

  7. A very creative friend of mine did the exact same kind of streamers for her marketplace booth except she used an assortment of different leftover fabrics from the girls' dresses she makes. It makes her booth look so inviting and festive!
