1 Hour Easy Bunting

I have seen several tutorial on how to make some really fabulous bunting.  This is not one of those tutorials.  This bunting is quick and cheap! No pinking, NO double sidedness, NO meticulous mathematics, NO bias tape. If this project takes you more then 1 hour you are doing something wrong.
 Step 1 : Make a triangle template out of scrap paper/cardboard
 Step 2 : Find scraps of fabric/felt/paper/denim and cut out triangles.
                          ( i used my rotary cutter and did 5 at a time)
 Step 3 : Choose ribbon (any length & width you want) & cut it in half. Pin the ribbon together about 12
                 inches from edge.    ( these ends will be used to tie the bunting to objects as pictured above)
Step 4 : Use your zigzag stitch and start sewing at the pin.
Step 5 : Add more flags at intervals you prefer.
             I used the edge of that metal plate as my guide.(pictured left)
             You could also use your Painter's Tape Guide (pictured right).
