Printables are everywhere! And for everything too-party decor, scrapbooking and more! Wanna hear a secret? I have NEVER used a printable in all of my crafting time. Crazy right? But when I started brainstorming about a 4th of July craft, some sort of printable made sense. I wanted to do a US Flag on a straw for 4th of July barbecues and parties-but creating a tiny flag would be nothing short of tedious with all those stripes and stars! Something printed would make it so much easier-especially when making multiples!
Here is what you will need:
- An image of a US flag
- 1″ Glue Lines® Roll
- Printer & Paper
- Paper cutter or scissors
- Find an image of a US flag. I just used a Google image search and found something printable and free for non-commercial use. I copied and pasted into Paint. I then made a copy and placed them side by side and then flipped the left one horizontal, leaving a half inch or so of space between.
- Cut out the flags.
- Place a 1″ Glue Line® in the center between the two flags and another on on edge both vertically as shown.
- Apply straw to center Glue Line®.
- Fold paper over and adhere, creating your flag!
Be safe and have a very happy Independence Day!
