Crafting with Chrissa! Blessing Flags.

Hi lovely viewers!  Chrissa here.  Today I'm showing you how to make Blessing Flags.
This is a easy, fun craft!  And you can change this to wish flags when your birthday is close, or thankfulness flags at Thanksgiving.  But before you can do any of that, I have to show you how!
You will need:
  • A pen or pencil
  • String
  • Scissors 
  • 8 by 11and a half sheet of paper (not shown)
  • Decorations like stickers, stamps, etc...
 The decorations are optional, but they help add a little pizza to the flags.
Ok. This may look contemplated, but it isn't really. Just a lot of folding.  Fold you paper into 4ths (# one and two), then unfold and cut on the lines (# three).  You will now have four pieces of paper. Now fold each piece in half and cut along that line (#4).  You should have eight sheets of paper.
Few!  Glad we got past that.
Cut a long piece of string.  Fold your paper over the string like in this picture (not in half):
Then attach the paper to the other side by stapling.
 Write who or what you are blessed to have...
Decorate, hang up, and you're done!
Happy Crafting!
