Bunting can be used for many occasions like birthday parties, market stalls, and even fun bedroom decor. Unfortunately it can also involve a lot of sewing, but if you're after something a bit quicker, then no-sew bunting is your answer.

You won't have to worry about ends fraying, or stitches coming undone. You'll have more time to have fun, and less time worrying about decorations.

Time: 30 minutes

Materials:
Colour Printer
Computer
Matte Photo Paper
Scissors
Ribbon or string

Method:

You'll need to start with your design. Open up image editing software like Photoshop or paint, and create a new document. Set your paper size to A4, and create two triangles.

Now it's time to create your design. You can add letters if you want to spell out a word, you can have spots of stripes, or even make triangular shaped flags. The only limit is your own creativity, and your skills with the software you're using.

It's time to print. Matte photo paper is the best to use, it's basically like card, but because it's photo paper you get a really bright and clear print. Before you print out 20 copies on card, do a test run on regular paper. This will make sure that your printer is working correctly, and that everything is the right size.

If the triangles are too big or too small, just play around with your print settings so you get them just the right size. Once their printed you just need to start cutting.

Once they've printed you've got to decide whether you'll be using string or ribbon to hang them. If you're using ribbon you can use a hole punch to make two holes at either end of the triangle, but if you're using string it's best to just use scissors to make a small hole.

Start threading the bunting. Make sure if your bunting is spelling out a word that you've got all the triangles in the correct order.

Now it's time to hang it wherever you like. The same steps can be taken to create miniature bunting, which makes a cute addition to any cake.
