Paper Bunting with Matching Cupcake Picks!

  
I love this paper!  
It screamed summer to me and I picture it outside for a summer barbecue, a casual dinner get together, or a little birthday party for either a boy or a girl.
 
 Oh, these colors.  So citrusy and summery.
  How fun is this yarn that looks like twine?
 
I think we need some matchy matchy cupcake picks.  What do you think?
You can use these flags for other things too...use them as a mini bunting, goody bag labels, or even on a food table (stick them inside a candy bowl of M&M's or treats).  
So much fun! 
I used lollipop sticks because I can not find white toothpicks.  
Do YOU know where I can find white toothpicks?
 Making this is really simple. :)
Just cut and fold each diamond shape to make a triangle and fold over twine, ribbon or string. 
Glue the triangles together from the tip of the point back towards the fold with craft glue.


Here is a template to make your own...

Enjoy!
Hugs and love sweet friends!

  2. Cute idea, I love bunting.
    To be honest, I wouldn't even know where to buy tooth picks, let alone white ones.

  5. Hi Jessica,
    Thanks for the banner idea and download. I have no idea where to find white toothpicks, but have coated my toothpicks with white almond bark to get a white/finished look. It was a little tricky but "did the job". E in TN
