Stress Free DIY Thank-You Bunting

DIY Thank You Bunting

This DIY literally takes only a few minutes, but it’s well worth it if you want a photo of your big day on the thank you cards.  Here’s how you can make our Simple DIY Thank You Bunting.

This above was taken by Matt Brown’s of us on our wedding day with our DIY Bunting!

Super simple DIY Thank You Wedding Bunting

What you will need:

  1. Microsoft Word or similar.
  2. A5 card (don’t forget to check that gsm restriction on your printer, some of the heavier cards are too thick for a domestic printer.
  3. A hole punch, ideally with a guide for A6 paper.
  4. Ribbon (2 metres) in a colour/pattern to match your theme. You can get some lovely ribbons at Ribbons and Bows in their Etsy shop.

If you want to make triangles on your bunting, you will also need a guillotine. This  Hobbycraft A4 5 in 1 paper trimmer is really easy to use and it can also be used to create a smooth curve on any corners! It’s not expensive, at the moment, with a £10 off promotion, it’s just £25. We used this for all our wedding invites (which were handmade pocket folds, with 3 different size inserts), along with all of our other wedding stationery.

Cost

This idea is super cheap and can cost as little as £2!

How long will it take?

If you use our template, you can do it in around 30 minutes! But it really does depend on how speedy you are at hole punching!!

What do you need to do?

This DIY Bride is really easy!

Without our template (use our template to speed things up!)

  • Open up Microsoft Word
  • Change the size of your paper to A5 (if you can’t get A5 paper, you can do it on A4, two to a page, but we would recommend that you buy a guillotine to get a clean edge)
  • On your first page type the letter T
  • Increase the size of the letter to 450 (we used Footlight MT font, so you may need to adjust this size if you use a different font)
  • If you want to personalise your bunting in anyway, now is the time to do it. Have a look at our ideas for inspiration!
  • Copy the page 8 times to create a page for each letter and change each to the correct letter (doing it this way means all letters are in the same place on the page)!
  • Check in print preview that the letters are all lined-up in the middle of the page
  • If you’ve only got a few sheets of card, do a test print run on paper and check you are happy with the design
  • Once you’re happy, print it out, ensuring your printer is set to best quality
  • If you’ve printed on A4 now’s the time to cut the paper into two, ideally using a guillotine
  • Next, set your hole punch to A6 size and punch the top of each A5 piece
  • Now you need to cut your ribbon. We’d suggest 2 metres, but use less if you want the letters to be closer together, or more if you’d prefer more space between the letters
  • Thread the ribbon through the holes you created one by one. Make sure you are consistent in the way you thread the ribbon through the holes to get a clean look. We made sure that the ribbon came from the reverse of the paper for the first hole and through the front for the second hole
  • Space out the letters until you’re happy with the look!

You’re done!! Sit back and admire your cheeky little Bride DIY!

  • Then you need to set your hole punch to A6 size and punch the top of each A5 piece
