Brighten up a room super quickly, super fun!
So, as I mentioned, I'm busy decorating. I had these awesome collective noun flashcards by Woop Studio, and I really wanted to do something with them. We buy these learning aids for our kids but how frequently do they actually take them out of the box? And these are just too cool to be hidden, so I decided that rather than using up wall space to display them (I have plans for other art work) I'd save myself the effort of cutting fabric for bunting and use the cards instead. I'm pretty impressed with the results and they will look good hanging in my son's room.

    Allow to dry for a few minutes (this should be quite quick, all purpose glue is fast drying) and use more glue to seal the folds in the tape between your cards, and to stick down any edges. And there you go, flash card bunting!
