How to Make Bunting out of a Golden Book

Okay, so I’m not talking about your limited edition collectable vintage Golden Books, but there are plenty of reproductions that you can use for this little afternoon project, and you are not limited to Golden Books either.
So lets make some Bunting …

Here’s my book: Walt Disney’s Dumbo
Get your exacto knife or Stanley knife and strip it down the left hand side of the inside pages to remove them all together.
Using a ruler, find the bottom centre and cut diagonally from the top left and top right sides to meet the bottom centre. You may have to cut a few times to get through all the pages.

I used about 2 metres of bias binding which comes in a range of colours from fabric stores. Lay out your pages and pin the bias binding folded over each page top, centring the pages across the entire 2 metres of binding.

Straight stitch across the entire bias binding.

Loop each end over and stitch to form a loop used to pin or hook the bunting to your wall.

And there you go! All ready to hang in the nursery or your child’s room.

Here are some I made out of ANTIQUE OPERA SHEET MUSIC. Once you start, there are SOOO many options. I think I’ll try an old atlas next!

I hope you enjoyed this tutorial!
