"Unfurl the Flag" Folding Craft Stick Flag Craft

To make this unique unfolding flag craft craft sticks are taped together so they can be folded out "unfurled" to reveal the flag and folded back up to form a compact stack of sticks.

What you will need:

WoodsiesWoodsies Mini Jumbo Craft Sticks -4.5" 50/Pkg - Use good quality craft sticks that lay flat. The 5/8" work perfect with the one-inch tape. *You can use the Woodsies Jumbo Craft Sticks with the 1.5 Inch - 3M Scotch Masking Tape for a bigger Canvas.

3M Scotch Masking Tape, 1-Inch - Other brands will work, but this tape works great! It is the exact color of the craft sticks. (Staple's Tape works better with the washable markers, but it is lighter than the stick and more transparent and doesn't cover the stick as well.)

Red, white and, blue acrylic paint

Red Ribbon - 1/4"

Glue Gun

 

Unfurl the Flag Patriotic Craft Stick Craft for the Forth of July www.daniellesplace.com

How to Make the Folding Craft Stick Canvas:

1. If you are using the mini-jumbo craft sticks, cut the one-inch masking into 4-inch pieces.

2. Place two sticks together, side by side, long ways, and tape them together covering both the sticks with the tape.

3. Turn the two sticks over so that they are diagonal to you.

4. Place another craft stick next to and below the two sticks that you taped together. Use another piece of tape to tape the bottom two sticks together.

5. Turn all three sticks over diagonally and place another stick at the bottom of the row and tape the last two sticks together. Keep going until you have a whole row of sticks.

6. You can also cover the first and last stick in the row by placing tape over the stick and then folding it back over the stick. It is easier to write on the tape than the craft stick. The ink soaks into the sticks and blurs.

7. Paint the sticks to look like a flag.

8. To finish glue a ribbon on the top of the row of craft sticks so you can hang the flag.
