Washi Tape American Flag Card




You'll need:
-8x10 white stock card paper
-Blue construction paper
-Blue and red washi tape (pick a fun design to make it unique)
-Glue Stick
-Scissors



Fold the card stock in half

Cut a 4.5in x 3in blue square using blue construction paper.


Use blue wash tape to cover the square. Don't worry about cutting it to the exact size as the excess tape can be cut off later. I'd recommend leaving it long to ensure it's not too short. 


Once the square is completely covered, start making your stripes. You can measure them out or "eyeball" the spacing. I'd recommend 5 stripes depending on the width of the washi tape. Mine weren't perfect but I'd rather live dangerously and free hand the measurements. After the stripes are complete, glue down the square. 


The finished product... a flower power American Flag. 


The possibilities are endless depending on the washi tape you use. After making the flowered flag, I decided to try some other versions. I went through my tape selection and got really excited when I found red/white plaid tape. These were super fun to make, and only took about 5-10 minutes each.  This would make a great activity for the whole family.
