Some of you have asked about the bunting - here's how.
HEALTH AND SAFETY - WORK IN A WELL VENTILATED AREA
Collect together lots of plastic bags and wrappers, the more colourful the better.
Place a sheet of baking parchment on your ironing surface and start to cover it with strips cut from the plastic.
Build up a couple of layers leaving no gaps.
Put another piece of baking parkment over the top and heat up your iron.
Irons vary, mine is a cheap one I use for craft and it needs to be in the cotton range.
Iron over the baking parchment quickly. You will see the plastic start to curl and shrink. Take a peek to see if it has stuck together, if not give it another quick pass with the hot iron. If you leave the iron in one place the plastic will disappear!
TAKE CARE - HOT PLASTIC STICKS AND BURNS.
The strips of plastic have melted together.
I turn it over and check the back to make sure it is all stuck down.
Cut out a pile of triangles...
and zig-zag stitch them to some tape.
This one was made with an old plastic document pocket filled with sequins or you could use snips of plastic.
Have fun and take care.
(Some books recommend using a respirator mask when melting plastic.)
