Do-it-Yourself Triangle Flags

Jun 25, 2013

Summer has some very patriotic holidays that all boast amazing flag displays. Whether it’s 4th of July in the U.S.A., Bastille Day in France or Canada Day in Canada, there’s going to be flags a flying! And of course many parties to celebrate. And what a better way to decorate your celebration than with your own flags?

These fun triangle flags are great to hang from the ceiling or in a doorway and are easy to make. Plus they look wonderful just about anywhere!

What You’ll Need:

  • Felt of various colors
  • Cardboard
  • Scissors
  • Iron
  • Twine or string
  • Fabric glue (most glues will work just fine)

Instructions:

1. Cut the cardboard into a diamond shape. Half of the diamond will be the size of your flag so keep that in mind.

2. Trace the diamond onto your felt and cut it out.

3. Fold the diamond tip-to-tip so that you have a triangle shape.

4. Iron the fold so that it stays and won’t flop back to a diamond shape. You may want some experienced help with this, because irons can be very hot!

5. Arrange the now triangle shaped flags along the string with the spacing and arrangement of colors you’d like.

6. Arrange the fold of the felt flags so that they fold over the string.

7. Glue the two sides of the felt together and let them sit until they dry.

8. Hang your flags where they look best and celebrate!

You can also cut out felt letters for each flag and make it say something. This would be perfect for a Happy Birthday banner or a special message to a friend. Use the fabric glue to attach it to the flag and it’s easier than easy!

Anxiety isn't something that can be described as a feeling or emotion. It is instead almost like a rain cloud. I use this rain cloud analogy because it doesn't fit the base of a shadow nor demon. Have you ever seen one of those rain clouds on cartoons that follow people around where ever they go? Anxiety is similar to that however unlike a shadow you will always know it's there and whenever you approach a social situation the rain gets heavier, and as you become weaker from surviving the heavy rain sometimes you take the easy way out and avoid the social situation altogether. You eventually feel helpless to the rain and give in, you avoid any social situation possible and begin to lose all skill in that area. Little did you know doing this to avoid heavy rain will instead set you up for a storm. A storm of awkwardness and low self esteem and that's when the dark thoughts seep in.  However there will be those people who will protect you for the storm, or those people who would be there if you needed them to and if you put in just a little effort you can evade the storm and though that little rain cloud may always linger around you, you will never forget about your experience in the storm, from that you grow as a person and eventually you will accept and laugh about this little rain cloud. You will accept yourself for who you are and push yourself beyond your boundaries to become the person you wanted to be. This person may not be perfect but if you are happy with the person you are then none of that should matter. None of the awkwardness, none of the mistakes and none of the imperfections should matter.  The only thing that does matter is the fact that you are the person you want to be. The person you are happy being. (Just my experience with anxiety /: ) I had a lot to get off of my chest)

We all know that the symbols and colors of God are only white. And devils color is red and black which stand for danger. I came to ask why did Satan choose two colors and mixed it together to make it scared and danger? And my another question is why did we always obey devils work and ignored Gods work? On my own mind i can say that is girls is the most human that do devils work, 95% and they do God work 5% But we guys can only do 40% of devils work and 50% for God.      Please if its false or true  story you can drop your comment below ........................................................... ...................................................................... ....................................................................................   What i understand in all these is   that  Satan is greedy and he came to destroy the world for those who give them chance like Nigeria have already give them chance, so is there for you  to choose one of this two masters God or Satan, because i know you cannot serve two masters at the same time;     Please give your vote with choice. .......................................................... ...................................................... .................................................. ............................................................... ...................................................................                             Thanks for your cooperation and thanks for your understanding                                                                       Sign by Desmond
