Step 1: Use scissors to cut a triangular piece of cardboard in the shape of a pennant flag. The cardboard from the lid of your craft kit works perfectly!
Step 2: Glue several pieces of graph paper from the kit onto the cardboard using a glue stick. This will cover the surface and create a fun background for your pennant! Use your scissors to trim any excess paper that hangs off the edges.
Step 3: Decorate your flag! Use the different pixel pieces in the kit along with pipe cleaners to write out a special message for your dad! You can also add googly eyes to a certain section of your flag for a fun little touch. Consider cutting your foam pieces to make smaller shapes, like triangles, to decorate with. When your flag is finished, use hot glue to glue a dowel rod along the back to create a handle.
