Sometimes the look of bunting can feel a little worn out to me. but I realized I’m still not sick of flags in bright modern colors. This project is great because it looks great hung up even after the party is over. I also love that you could take it down and reuse it over and over. It’s a classic look that makes any party look instantly festive. We’ve just started selling our favorite packs of good-quality colored cardstock in a kit right here.
Step 1: On a regular sheet of printer paper, cut out a triangle template.
Step 2: Trace this template onto your sheets of cardstock.
Step 3: Use your exacto knife or scissors to cut out as many triangles as you need. The more you cut out, the longer your garland will be.
Step 4: Sew the tops of the triangles together – leaving about 2 fingers of space between each flag. You may have to adjust the settings on your sewing machine.
Step 5: Hang with tape!
(Protip: keep them wrapped up on a piece of cardboard for easy untangled storage.)
