Cut cardstock with your paper cutter into 1/2" strips in the three colors of the flag. Lay the strips in a pattern onto a sheet of sticky label paper (you can also just tape the strips together. Because I was making a card 5 1/2" wide, I laid enough strips to measure 5 1/2" from the first strip at the bottom to the last one on the top. I then cut the paper with my paper cutter so that I had a 1/2" strip with the three alternating colors on one 5 1/2" x 1/2" strip. This is a fun way to incorporate all the colors in the composition into one accent piece. Try it with a different color combination or cut it into thinner strips for a different look. You can also combine the cut strips together into an instant checkerboard design. Have fun!
