I also made the heartstrings, based on Little Birdie Secrets' blog post.
How to make the flags:
Step 2: Cut each page into a triangular flag shape.
Step 3: Notch each top corner. I have shown where to cut by adding black lines here- you should cut on these lines. *Note- by adding this notch, the edges won't show when it is folded down in a later step.
Step 4: Collect a bunch of really cool papers. Have I mentioned that I LOVE paper??
Step 5: Cut some hearts from the decorative papers and glue one heart to each flag.
Step 6: Add a line of glue along the top (notched) edge and lay a cord or string in the glue. *Note- do not cut this cord- keep it on the spool so the flags can be strung up.
Step 7: Fold the notched edge down over the cord and press to seal.
Step 8: Get some cardstock or heavy scrapbook paper to use as backing.
Step 9: Glue the flag to the backing , lining up the top edges.
Step 10: Using some fancy edged scissors, cut the cardstock so that just a small edge shows around the flag.
Step 11: Continue until you have your desired length.
