I got pretty paper from a gifted magazine from my house mates Mum who is craft crazy too.
I had a tonne of pretty paper but thought the freebies with simply homemade should be put to use.
So I collected the paper I wanted to use (its a nice thick paper) from my stash and also got my pretty tape the same friend bought me in Japan.
With scrap paper I cut out a template of a large elongated 'bunting flag' shaped triangle with a slim rectangle included above it, trimming until I was happy with the size.
Tracing it onto one sheet of paper I then grabbed a handful and some very sharp paper scissors to bulk cut them out. EASY!
Using my pretty tape I taped along the slim rectangles at the top of each flag...
Joining them as I went. This was the only only tricky part as the tape likes to stick to EVERYTHING and you have to double it up behind the flag to ensure it is a strong hold whilst aligning the tape and un-sticking it from everything.Also leave a little at each end for hanging/pinning.
Then hang it!
See, easy and pretty :) Oh and a sneaky look at my 5 ft map too.
