Step 1: The first step is to cut your desired number of flags out of the printed papers – we chose to do 6. You can either cut them all the same shape or you can mix it up like we did! We ended up doing 2 square flags, 2 swallowtail flags and 2 triangular flags.







Step 2:  Now, the fun part – decorating your flags! Here, you have creative reign. We took bits a pieces of our papers, fringes, cord, hardware and tags and decorated each flag uniquely. Just cut, arrange and glue – easy as that!

All of these papers go together seamlessly, so any combination you come up with is bound to look good!


Step 3:  Now, all you have to do is punch two holes in the top left and right corners of each of your flags and string the cord. We also added a few little pieces burlap and canvas fringe in between the flags to add a little more flare.


Step 4:  Enjoy your simple, but down right cool western-themed masterpiece!



You can also grab a Boots ‘n Saddle Mix and Match Pad and use the assorted papers, fabrics, printed fabric, burlap  and fluted papers to created fun banners like this one.  The Mix and Match pads are available in a wide range of themes for your next banner or craft project need.
