Easy 4th of July Craft {Paint Sample American Flag}




Visit thecsiproject.com
This craft could not be easier! It took me longer to write the tutorial than to do the actual project! It is great for kids too!

Here is what you will need:
Large Paint sample with reds
small single blue paint sample.
glue
scissors
Optional: Sewing machine

1. Cut your blue paint sample a little smaller to make a rectangle shape for the flag. I rounded my edges to keep it similar to the big red paint sample.

2. Glue it to the corner

Optional:
3. Sew around the edge with a zig zag stitch.



Here are some possible uses for your cute new flag!

Place setting card

Part of your 4th of July table centerpiece

A card to tell what kind of food you brought to the pot luck
It is a great last minute 4th of July craft!
