Put the flags out!

Hey there...
I splashed out last week and bought a craft magazine - Papercraft Inspirations. I admit, I was lured in by the free stamp set that came with it. It includes a little alphabet, which will be really useful, along with various banners and birds. I used one of the larger banners on this card.

I made some flags with snippets of paper and toothpicks. The flags are popped up with foam tape and I used small glue dots on the toothpicks, where they overlapped. You might just be able to make out that I snipped the end off one toothpick, so that it would be a similar length to the others.
The banner itself was popped up on double height foam tape.

This is wonderful!
I love those little flags. If you'd popped the shortened end of toothpick inside the banner, the ends would all have looked the same... not that it matters, it all looks terrific!
Thanks so much
