A Creative Photo Corner Flag

It’s almost the 4th of July! What a great time to celebrate all things patriotic! Today my flag project is something that I’ve been tossing around in my head for a little while, and I’m so happy that it worked out the way I imagined it would.

I love how the Creative Photo Corners stack and create chevron patterns, so I combined the two concepts for this:

Creating a Photo Corner Chevron Flag

I airbrushed the white Creative Photo Corners with markers. You could color them directly, but I like the variations in color from airbrushing.


Then I layered them across a piece of paper in rows. I went with 9 across, with the blue field having 3 across.

Tip: trim the sheet into rows of Creative Photo Corners, then peel back part of the backing paper and align on the project. Then you can pull the rest of the paper off and they stay straight. This is easier than applying them one by one by hand.

To finish, I mounted the flag to kraft cardstock with E-Z Runner® Permanent Strips,  then a white chipboard base using Crafty Foam Tape for dimension. I punched holes and pulled a jute ribbon through and secured it to the back side with the Crafty Foam Tape.

You could also frame it!
