Cake Bunting Free Printable Download
My son turned 14 last week.
And although obviously as a true 14 year old he would rather have a long lie in bed – family tradition dictates that we must have a special breakfast on morning of his birthday.
Unfortunately Mr PaintSewGlueChew was traveling with work that week, so more important than usual to make it a bit special.
Obviously in our house, that will mean bunting. This year I also made some cake bunting to go on the breakfast waffles.
14 year old boys (in our house anyway) are not known for their enthusiasm for such things. I did get some indulgent smiles from the birthday boy… but joy of joys. I overheard him telling Mr PaintSewGlueChew on the phone that they were really cool. I’ll take that! The cake bunting I made for Jamie was cute, but the text wasn’t really big enough. I’ve redone the cake bunting as a free printable download. Just add bbq skewers, thread and sticky tape.
I’ve created two pages of bunting phrases in a variety of fonts. There are 8 different phrases to choose from.
The printables are black, and looks great as a black and white on just standard printer paper. Or coloured paper is a bit more festive, to brighten things up without using tonnes of printer ink. You can download them Cake Bunting 1 & Cake Bunting 2
To make the bunting:
First print out the download sheet of your choice onto A4 sized paper.
Cut out the diamond shapes. a few snips separate out the letters. Then trim off the excess. Fold overAnd add double sided tape. I put the tape over the crease, so the bunting doesn’t slide on the thread.
Then press and fold over the thread.
Leave enough slack on the thread to tie round a couple of skewers. Loner words will require loner skewers.
Abbi and I made the complete set last night in about 20 minutes. I wanted something that could easily fit on a small cake or cupcakes.
And they are perfect to jazz up some simple pancakes.They even work to jazz up a pot plant.And here is the complete set:
