Adventure Awaits Free Printable Pennant Flags and DIY garland

Steps

1. Download and print pennant flags on colored card stock paper; cut them out.

2. Using sharp scissors, make a small hole on top and bottom corners of flag and slide the skewer through.

3. To make the paper garland: Use the same paper as the pennant flags and cut 3 long strips of paper about 1/4 inch thick. Next, cut then into 2-inch strips. The more strips you have, the longer your garland will be.

4. This is a very basic sewing project! Using a straight stitch, place a paper strip under the foot of sewing machine and slowly run it through the foot; make a few stitches before sliding the next piece of paper.

5. Sew slowly as you have to manually add each piece of paper under the sewing foot. Continue in a pattern until you are out of paper.

6. Now you have a festive and re-usable paper garland!
