It cost £0.00 which I was very pleased about. I already had some bits for it (ribbon, sharpie pens), hence the £0 price tag but even if you had to buy some things it still works out as a bit of a bargain!
To make it you need:
Wallpaper samples - mine were silver and gold
Sharpie pens - again silver and gold
Glue (mine is Pritt stick)
Ribbon - how much you need depends on how long your message is. You can always reuse it afterwards.
A bit of scrap card
First make a template of the "flag" shape on the scrap card:
Place this on the back of the wallpaper and draw round in pencil.
Just cut as many as you need, that depends on what you want to say! I ended up needing 17 flags, 9 silver and 8 gold. Here is a glimpse of the high tech way I calculated how many G (gold) and S (silver) I needed!
Then just cut them out carefully.
Now to decorate them. You can do whatever you like, I used my lovely 2" circle punch to cut wallpaper circles.
Stick them onto the flags centrally,then use the Sharpies to write the letter. I also added a border to the flag and the circle.
I kept the letters REALLY simple, if you can do fancy calligraphy you should do that!
Cut a little slot at the top corners of each flag with a craft knife.
Then thread the ribbon through.
Now it's ready to hang up!
