For the Mr & Mrs bunting, a metre was used according to the measurements above.Step 3: Fold your burlap in half and iron along it to get rid of any creases. Then take your stencil and draw as many triangles as needed for your lettering.Step 4: Pin in between each triangle to ensure they stay secure and do not move around as you cut them out.Step 5: Next, print out your lettering in the font you want and cut each individual letter out. Step 6: Open up the bunting and place your letter in the middle then fold the bunting back over. Take a marker and trace over your letter, repeating this step for all of your letters.Step 7: Take a piece of twine and open up your bunting.
