DIY Paper Flags for Gifts & Packages

Amanda has done it again — amazing me with her crafty cuteness and new ideas! We have all seen handmade paper flags before but I don't know that I have ever seen any this cute!! What a fun idea to add four flags to each stick instead of just one! How's that for multiplying the cuteness factor? These DIY paper flags would be so fun to use as Amanda has done here, or as a birthday cake topper or even on your next scrapbook page or card!

Hello!! I am so excited to share my first project with you as part of Maggie’s Design Team. I have been having so much fun playing with all of her beautiful products. 

I am always thinking of creative and easy ways to brighten the day of those around me. Today, I would like to show you a quick way to create a gift of thanks or a little gift to bring your friend the next time you meet for lunch.

Using a variety of Maggie’s Style Board pattern papers, I started by cutting the paper in strips. I love playing and using different widths and lengths when cutting paper. At the end of the paper I cut a triangle shape in different directions to give the paper a flag look.

Once I had all the paper cut out, I laid the strips out and gathered them in groups of four.   Using the Maggie Holmes roller stamp I picked one of the papers to stamp. I just love the variety of all the cute sayings all on one stamp.    

Using a small bamboo stick as the base, I folded over the straight edge of the paper and attached to the stick. I am still getting use to using a roller adhesive, so I will be honest with you; I used my hot glue gun to attach the flags to the stick.

To finish the project off, I planted a succulent in a vintage mug and stuck the paper flag inside. This is a great project to use all of all your left over scraps.  I am always saving the smallest scraps.  I hope this project inspires you to use your paper in a different way. Thanks for letting me share with you today!!!
