Sunday DIY: Origami Bunting


This week's DIY is really simple to do but, like any origami, really difficult to write a tutorial for! Hopefully the photographs will help explain the steps but if not feel free to ask any questions in the comments or on twitter.

To create your own garland of origami bunting you'll need:
  •  Pretty papers cut into equal sized squares. I used actual origami paper but alternatively use wrapping paper, magazine pages, newspaper, books etc
  •  A length of something to hang the flags on. Twine, ribbon or string or would all work well
  • Sticky tape
  • Scissors
1. The first step is to fold your paper into a basic origami square base. If you're unsure how to do that take a look at this video.
2. Next you'll need to fold over the sides so you get something that looks like a kite.
3. Once you've done that you can fold over the top point and you'll be left with the flag/triangle shape. 
4. Place the string under the top fold and take a small piece of sticky tape to secure the flag onto the string. You should still be able to slide the flags on the string so you can adjust the positions later.
5. Reapeat this until you have a whole string of pretty paper flags!
