My easy alternative was inspired by a DIY Bunting Tutorial on Project Wedding. I love the clean lines! You can leave your flags blank or stamp a pretty design on them like I did.
- Tissue paper in multiple colors
- Lever-style paper trimmer or scissors
- Rubber stamp (optional)
- Ink (optional)
- Glue stick
- Cut multiple sheets of tissue at once into 8x6" strips using a lever paper trimmer or scissors. Fold in half to create 4x6" flags.
- Using a rubber stamp and ink, stamp a design onto your folded flags. I stamped a flower in the upper left corner of all my orange flags, in the center of all my yellow flags, and in the bottom right of all my green flags for variety.
- Unfold one of the flags, and run a glue stick around the four edges of the inside of the bottom half.
- Place a length of twine in the fold of the flag, and fold in half to adhere the flags edges together. I used Divine Twine in Lemon by Whisker Graphics.
- Leaving 2-3" section of twine from the edge of this flag, adhere the next flag onto the twine. Repeat with desired amount of flags.
- Hang and enjoy!

I'd love to see photos if you make your own Mexican Paper Flags!
