DIY Record Sleeve Bunting

I run an online vintage store, which doesn’t usually leave the confines of the internet, but a few weeks ago I participated in my first pop-up shop. In-person you have to think much more about decor and presentation, so I came up with a few vintage-inspired pieces of decor to liven my space up, but I think they would also work if you were throwing a vintage or music themed party as well.

Materials Needed:
Pile of vintage 45’s with colorful sleeves
String
Two sided tape
Scissors

Step One: Take the records out of the sleeves and iron the sleeves flat if they are wrinkled or torn

Step Two: Fold all of the sleeves in half so that a colorful side of the sleeve is showing

Step Three: Cut your string the the appropriate hanging party length. Place double-sided tape on the corners of each folded sleeve, and tape it on top of the string so that the sleeve hangs snugly on the string, but isn’t actually taped to the string.

Step Four: Repeat this process until you have a bunting banner of the desired length.

Step Five: Hang. Party on.

Pro-Tip: Trying to figure out how many sleeves you’ll need? Each “flag” will measure 9.5 inches once folded, so you should determine how long (in inches) you need your banner to be, and then divide by 10 inches.
