Mini Bunting Flag Card

I am pretty sure I have declared my love of bunting flags to you all at some point since starting my blog. If you were not aware that I love, love, love bunting flags let me tell you that I do... I really, really do.

Anyway, imagine my delight when I came across a tutorial at How About Orange for making mini bunting flag cards. As my niece's birthday is coming up, I thought I would make her one.

The tutorial was easy enough to follow, however putting those flags on the way the tutorial said to was incredibly fiddly. I got glue all over my fingers which meant that everything I touched got stuck to my fingers and in the end I decided there must be an easier (and less frustrating) way.

Sure enough there was. I suggest firstly gluing the little flags together by putting glue on just the tips of the flag and then sealing them shut. Once you have done this to all of your flags, load a needle up with your desired thread and poke your needle through the top edge of the flag. The result is pretty much the same:

I hope she loves the card as much as I do! I made a start on her birthday present today too, so I will be sure to post about that once it's done (if it works!) lol.
