Bunting templates

The official Platinum Jubilee website has a selection of templates you can use to make your very own bunting.

You can find these using the links below:

To make this bunting, all you need to do is print out as many sheets as you like on A4 paper then cut out the individual triangles.

After you've cut out the bunting, you need to cut along the dashed lines on each pennant, which creates holes for the string or ribbon to go through. You then need to thread the pennants along it.

If you don't fancy any of the official bunting, there are loads more templates available online.
