DIY Friday: O Canada Flags

Happy Canada Day!

I’ve got an easy and quick DIY craft for anyone who wants to make something to decorate your home for today!

Step 1:  Cut a piece of white card stock to 7 1/2 by 5 inches.  Fold about 1/2 an inch over on the 5 inch side.  Using double sided tape, securely tape a wooden skewer inside the fold.

Step 2:  Cut out two hearts from red paper.  I used my Friskars paper cutter for this step, but you can cut out hearts free hand.

Step 3:  Cut out two 3 by 5 inch strips of read paper.  Fold them down the center and gently fray the paper edges.

Frey the hearts edges to.

Step 4:  Glue all pieces onto the card stock, folding the paper strips around the edges.  Note: you glue a heart on both sides.

Step 5:  You can stitch down the flags strips if desired.  It just adds a nice touch.

I found a perfect spot for mine in with these gorgeous sunflowers!

I am so thankful to call Canada my home!  Enjoy the long weekend!
