I adapted a paper strip idea I saw in a magazine to make a flag card. It's a great way to use up scraps of scrapbook paper.
Use one inch strips for the blue area and half inch strips for the cream. I drew a rough pattern of the blue cross on the card so that I could make sure the other strips went underneath to cover up the loose ends. Trim round the edges at the end. The triangles are slightly bigger than the half inch strips. All pieces have been edged with vintage photo distress ink.
