How to make an Easy 4th of July Paper Bunting

No sewing for this one! Woo Hoo! Here is a quick and easy way to decorate for the 4th!

Here is what you will need:
Card stock in red, white and blue (and decorative red,white and blue paper)
hole punch
scratch paper to make star template (I got one from clip art and I also free hand-ed one on a piece of extra paper below)

1.) Cut out your star template and trace on to card stock.
2. Cut out all your stars and arrange them on a table to see what order you want to put them in.

3. Punch holes in your stars. I punched 2 holes on the ones on the top and one hole on the ones that I am dangling down.
4. thread your ribbon through the holes of the top stars.

5. tie on ribbon to the bottom stars

6. Tie the bottom stars on to the top ribbon

7. I also punch a hole in the middle star and hung a star from that.

8.) All done! Sit back and admire and sing The Star Spangled Banner!

Keep your scraps from this project for our project next week! It is going to be an easy center piece for the 4th!
