I should start this post by saying that I can't take any credit for this idea. This was all Jake. We took our nets down at our kitchen window recently and the room looked really bare, so he came up with the idea of making bunting out of food magazines! It's been on my handmade to-do list ever since. The best thing is that costs next to nothing to make, and really brightens up our colourless rented kitchen.
Supplies: A food magazine, masking tape, paper, scissors, bakers twine.
1// Make a paper template for the paper flags, folding it in half to make sure it's even.
2// Fold over a couple of centimetres at the top and snip off the pointy sides (as in the pic above).
3// Attach the flags to a length of bakers twine with a bit of masking tape. It helps to lay them all out first so you can get the balance of colours right.
4// Fix your new bunting in place with tape - I used pink gaffa tape as it sticks to tile well.
Excuse our cloudy window, another renting peril.
I love how colourful food photography is, and I feel like this is a great way to show it off. What do you think?
