Technique Tuesday with Jennifer Longenecker

I just got back from CHA and one of the trends that I noticed was pin flags. They are super cute, but if you want to make your own here's a super quick and easy tutorial.

Grab some scrap paper, floral pins, adhesive and punches. Cut your scrap paper to your desired width. I found that for the triangular flags 1 inch works best and for the rectangular flags 1/2 inch works best.




Cut your strips to 3 inches then mark where you are going to cut with a pencil by finding the middle and then drawing a line from the corners to the middle. Once you have your lines marked cut out your flags and then erase the lines.




Fold your flags in half and score. Open you flag back up, apply adhesive, add your pin, and then fold the flag up once again. Make sure you have a good seal.




You can leave your flags like this or you can decorate to add a little more flair.
