Jubilee Paper Bag DIY Decorations


We love a paper decoration here at Petra Boase and with The Queen's Jubilee fast approaching I wanted to share my 'go to' DIY paper bag decorations. Whether you are part  of a full scale village green or street party or quietly raising a glass at home, these decorations are fun for all ages to get involved in and make. While we have stuck to a red, white and blue theme here, the same decorations can be created and adapted for other celebrations in different colour combinations.

PAPER BAG BUNTING

You will need:

  • Paper bags ( we used 18x 13cm )
  • Bakers twine
  • Glue
  • Scissors
  • Ruler
For each flag fold the bag in half vertically.Draw a line from the base open edge diagonally up to the opposite corner and cut out. Once you have cut all your flags, open out each one glue along the fold line and attach around the twine. For larger bunting flags use larger paper bags.


PAPER BAG PAPER CHAIN

 You will need: 

  • Paper bags ( we used 18x 13cm ) 
  • Glue, stapler or tape
  • Scissors 
  • Ruler 

Cut the bag into four vertical strips ( approx 18 x 3 cm).Join each chain and secure with glue, tape or a staple.


Paper Bag Fan Kit

Each and every paper bag decoration created is unique and that's part of the joy in making them. The kit is a great if you just want to try out making a few fans and we have lots of other jolly colours available.

Photoshoot Location

The Queen's love for her horses has always been strong, so my friend Charlie's converted vintage horse box (where she runs her Norfolk bike hire business, Vintage Village Velos) felt the perfect backdrop for this photoshoot. Attentively  restored and ooozing with charm, the compact space was a real joy to style and bring to life with our decorations and the natural just light flooded in.
