DIY :: Paper Bunting Greeting Card

I have seen a lot of cute bunting ideas floating around all over the www and decided to do a quick project making and using bunting. I had a bunch of old paper scraps and decided to make a little greeting card :)
I printed "hello, friend" on a blank greeting card to get started. You could also handwrite any sort of message. 
I cut out some triangular pennant-looking shapes from a rainbow of old paper scraps.
I then measured and placed two sets of dots to know where to punch my holes to string the bunting string through (you could also eyeball it :)).
 And then punched the holes with a 1/16" paper punch- you could also use a pushpin to punch the holes.
 I strung some baker's twine through and tied them on the interior of the card.
 And then arranged the flags how I wanted them to be placed.
And adhered them with permanent rolling adhesive. I butted them up against and a tad over the baker's twine to hold the baker's twine in place.
 Voila! A simple and quick bunting greeting card :)
