Challenge Me Tuesday: Flags

***Next week we're featuring customized buttons*** Show us how you can transform a button, or just a great fresh way to use them. Send us a link to your project at Practicalscrapperslayouts(at)gmail(dot)com If you would like for us to feature your work. 


If you thought banners were a popular page element in the past year or so, just wait until flags and pennants catch on! I've seen a few manufacturers releasing stickers or die cuts in flag shapes, and making your own is easy!
Flags are a great way to convey a message, or signal a celebration.


Practical Scrapper Erin

On my layout, I used a sticker by Echo Park layered on white cardstock, and "mounted" on a wooden skewer that I misted with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist. 

Practical Scrapper Christine

Christine made flags and attached them to stick pins.  She used Momenta paper and embellishments throughout the card and added some black doodling (100% inspired by Practical Scrapper Erin!) throughout to give the products a slightly bolder look.

 Practical Scrapper Michelle R

Here the flag coordinates with the rest of Michelle's page, using October Afternoon Product from the Rocket Age Collection.


Practical Scrapper Teresa Jaye

What better way to highlight a celebration, than by flying your colours?


Kathleen topped a white Craft Flag by Nikki Sivils with a Flag of the Philippines to customize.

 Show your patriotism, team or school colours by adding a flag to your next project. Use a flag to add a date or message on a card or page, or try grouping a few flags flying high in lieu of a banner. Be on the lookout for this new hot trend!

Beautiful layout! Pretty great idea for using flags as part of the design, really adds a deep meaning to the art. I sure want to try this one for my coming projects, perfect for printed pattern paper that I have.
