    Step 1

    Step 2

    On the brown card, mark out the desired size and shape of your gift tags and cut. I made a stencil out of white card (9x5cm) to help me trace out my tags.

    Step 3

    To prepare the bunting flags. On the coloured paper, mark out the size of the flags. I made mine 2cm tall, 1.5 cm wide and the centre point was 0.75cm. Then it was just a process of joining the dots

    Step 4

    Cut out the triangles and arrange on the card. Play around with the design, colour combinations and styling. Once you're happy with the layout, glue all the pieces down.

    Step 5

    Mark the centre point on the reverse side of the card, punch a hole for the twine to be threaded through.
