Tiger Stores is one of my favourite craft supply shops – everything is at a good price, so today I made some easy bunting which involved minimal effort from me and still looks good.
Easy bunting is something I’ve had in mind for H’s birthday – and Tiger Stores have some cool things in stock at the moment, but I hadn’t had the time to start it.
Today I was ill from work and needed something to occupy myself without it being too strenuous, something which involved minimal effort but decent results.
So here’s my Tiger Stores Easy Bunting Instructions :
Buy the Karton cardboard triangles which are bunting shaped. There are 50 in total, in ten different colours. £2.
If you’re anything like me you’ll always have a stash of the sticky back plastic drawer liners Tiger do – they have various colours at £4 a roll. I always keep any pieces I might do something with, as even the tiniest amount works. I have four different patterns at the moment.
Other than that I picked up some Snor purple string (£1 or £2) to use for hanging them.
Work out the letters you need and using the handy guides on the back of the sticky paper make sure they’re the same size. Cut them out and look out for the letters which will come out the opposite way (like p) – don’t forget to do those backwards (I forgot).
Take each card piece of easy bunting and sort them into the colours you want. There are ten colours; green, dark green, blue, light blue, pink, cerise, yellow, orange, red and black.
Sort out which letters you want on which colour. Peel off the backing and stick them on.
You’ll probably have bits of plastic sticky stuff left – don’t throw it away, use it to fix the card to the string at the back – it’s strong sticky stuff so should do the job.
Hang up and admire your easy bunting then have a long lie down afterwards.
Gulp. I’ve just read they’ve opened a BIG store on Oxford Street. Dangerous. For my bank balance, that is…
