Materials Needed:
Sewing Machine
Fabric
Pellon / Interfacing
Iron
Rotary Pinking Cutter
Scissors
Satin Ribbon 
Coordinating Thread 

Instructions:
1. Iron fabric to Pellon. Create a flag template from paper to desired shape. I made an isosceles triangle measuring 2.5″ wide and 4″ tall. Using your template as a guide, cut out each piece with rotary pinking shears. Trim off excess fabric at the top. 

2. Once all the pices are cut out, line them up in the order that you’d like them to appear. I went for a random look but it helped to get an idea of where each flag might hang.

3. Leaving a little extra at each end for hanging, stitch each pice to the satin ribbon using a sewing machine. For flexibility I left half an inch between each flag. That’s it! Now you have a custom garland of your own!
