I started off with some fabric tape from boqinana, baker's twine from Knot and Bow, and two wooden barbeque skewers.
First step was to cut 2-inch pieces of the fabric tape and fold them in half. Then I took the paper backing off the tape. Starting about 8 inches in from the end of the twine (I wanted enough twine to wrap around the skewer plus some extra), I placed the twine along the middle of the fabric tape. Fold the tape over the twine to create a little flag. Cut the bottom of the flag into a V shape. Repeat, leaving about 1/2 cm between fabric flags. Et voila, a little bunting fit for a birthday cake.
Or in this case, some banana bread.
And speaking of birthday, here's the soon-to-be two-year-old herself. This was her weekend morning outfit - winter hat, crazy scraggly hair at the back of her head (it looks like that EVERY morning!), training underwear, stained pajama top, and no pants. I especially enjoyed the lion imitation. It doesn't get much better than this :)
