  4. Put ruler on top of the 2nd line before adding the 3rd row, which is red again.Apply red colour.

Cut out bunting.
Step 10: Cut out bunting.
  1. We cut out the baubles from the purple, red triangular flags from the red, inverted ,'V' flags from the green, stars from the blue, snowflakes from the blues and greens, Christmas stockings from the green and red sripes and ginger breadmen from the red and yellow stripes and the left over colours.
Arrange Bunting
Step 11: Arrange Bunting
  1. We had a roll of 30 metres of ribbon 1.5 cm wide.
  2. We chose not to punch out the holes and thread the ribbon through because of the fineness of the stars, baubles and snowflakes. However, if you only made the larger pieces with the two hole, you could thread ribbon through the bunting.
  3. Our students stapled the pieces onto the ribbon, putting two staples into each piece. (Hence the top of the bauble is above the ribbon.
  4. This is a great home, classroom or therapy activity to make something pretty and easy to store.
  5. What a great present to take to your local hospital for ward decoration!
  6. Keep on crafting!
