Oooh la la! The new June issue of Ideal Home is in the shops now, and it’s a cracker! Bunting fans will be especially chuffed to discover we’re giving away some gorgeous printed bunting with this issue, covered with pretty vintage-style floral patterns fresh from the pages of the lovely Reprodepot Pattern book: Flora.

It’s so easy to make – all you need is a ribbon and some staples or glue – and it looks great draped around the garden for a summer party. Stick it to your shed, tie it to trees and bushes, wrap it around your garden furniture – instant summer chic! Also, if you’re keen to get hold of the Reprodepot Pattern book: Flora and the joyous accompanying CD of high-resolution printable patterns for craft, we’re running a special offer in our June issue, which means you can get your sticky little mitts on the book for just £9.99 as opposed to £16.99 – you can’t say fairer than that. – Ellie
