Beaded Mini Flags
Choose a country and make a flag! We’ve found ten countries whose flags will work with this project: Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Romania and Russia.
- Pony Beads
- Rat-tail Satin Cord
- Tacky Glue
- Flag Patterns
- SWAP Tags (not shown) (optional)
Cut 12″ of satin cord.
Choose a pattern. Starting at the far right column. String on the three beads and bring them to the middle of the cord. String the middle column of beads on the right hand cord. String the left hand cord though the same three beads in reverse order. Then weave the final column in the same manner. Bring ends together and tie off at the bottom. Coat the end 1/2″ of the toothpick with tacky glue and slide it into the final row of beads. Add a pin. If you are using optional SWAP tags, write your message on the tag and slide onto the pin. Close pin.
Join our SWAP Sensation and mail your SWAPs to us and we will send you back some from other Girl Scouts.
