Bird-day Bunting

There’s a big bunting craze going on all around blog-land, and I’ve been trying to find the time to sew some out of fabric — I think it would be super cute hanging from a shelf above my computer here in the office.  Then it hit me: why not use Japanese masking tape and make some for a card?

Just fold a piece of tape over some twine, stick the two sides together and trim into a triangle.  Instant bunting gratification!  I think it would be cute to make flags for cupcake toppers, too — wrap the tape around a toothpick!

(Supplies: Japanese masking tape, bird and message by A Muse, twine saved from a shipping tag. Fabriano notecard.)
