Paper Flags

For the first blog post of my life I had to think of something that I really liked. I thought of the usual (cute baby animals) but didn't know where to go with that, so I thought and thought and finally landed on these little gems, Mexican Paper Flags.

I don't know what it is about these but whenever I see them they automatically brighten my day. If you want to purchase them, you can do so here.  BUT I think the real fun comes in making them. With just an exacto knife and tissue paper you can make these little beauties yourself. I made these fawn flags
 awhile back and found them today.


I would need to make a few more for it to look like the amazing examples above, but they make me happy none the less. I can't wait for the next party or occasion that I need to make paper flags for. Hopefully this post will inspire someone to start a new love for paper flags or even better, make them.
