Easy Hand Craft

Additional Craft Information:

There is an easy and simple way to make a custom flag. The design of your flag will be highly influenced by your personal orientation or a team logo, whether it is horizontal or vertical. You must also get design ideas and materials of your custom flag from a flag store.

DIY Craft Essential #1: Washi tape

You'd be surprised at how many things you can do, and how many tutorials out there are obsessed, with washi tape. The versatile paper tape with adorable designs makes great wall decor, paper crafts or can even spruce up your furniture.

DIY Craft Essential #2: Needle nose pliers

This tiny tool is great for small projects. "This is not only your go­-to tool for opening and closing jump rings, bending wire, and securing crimp beads and ribbon ends, but pliers are also great for cutting through jewelry chain and wire," said Morin.

If you are planning to make in vertical, then a square flag is the right choice, although you must also consider the other options available. The right size must have the dimension of more than three feet to make sure that it is clearly seen with a large gathering. The simplest and best way of getting the right proportion of your team or personal logo in custom designed team flag is by making huge copies of the logo using a regular copier. Ensure that you zoom in your logo design in the right size in order for you to use these templates in making the logo on your custom flags. If you might need to reproduce the logo in various sheets, then you can still use it as your template by lining and taping the sheets to finish off the logo design on your custom flag. While you still work on your design for the logo design of your custom flag, design on the right base and background color that you will be using in your flag.

DIY Craft Essential #3: X-acto knife

If you love stationary crafts, jewelry crafts or any delicate work -- you'll need a proper cutting tool. Not all scissors can do the job. "Remember first using scissors and cutting along the dotted lines in grade school?" Morin asked. "Hopefully, you’re attempting more challenging crafts as an adults."

DIY Craft Essential #4: Spray paint

Acrylic paints are also great for any DIY starter kit. However, if you're looking for a perfect, seamless finish on your furniture, art and home decor -- make some space to spray. It doesn't hurt to keep some cans in your favorite colors (as long as you store them properly).

It is essential to make extra logo copies to design template just in case you need them when you plan later to alter the design. The logo templates are not compulsory to be reproduced with colors as you can make the right notations on a white and black logo pattern. Though it is essential to generate sharp images of your logo where the details of the design are clearly shown. You must also remember that these copies will also be used for patterns in making your logo in your custom flag.

How to use your reproduced copies of your logo? Keep one copy aside, as a general guide. You can just tape it on the wall or a board within the work area. This might serve as your ready reference while working on a custom flag. Now cut into sheets based on the color elements that you might follow in your custom flag. Once all these steps are done, now it's time to choose the right fabric.

DIY Craft Essential #5: Painter's tape

Painter's tape is "perfect for for attempting the c​olor block trend," said Morin. Plus, you'll need something to keep your projects neat and tidy, no matter what type of paints you use.

DIY Craft Essential #6: Hot glue gun

There are some tools that are too functional not to have. "This is one DIY workhorse tool you shouldn't do without," said Morin. Hot melt glue works on a variety of materials.
