Litle Tibetan Prayer Flags
Fabric transfer paper for a printer, string, glue, flag template
Tibetan prayer flags typically are thought to promote peace and harmony. What a nice symbol to have in your busy home to remind you to slow down and remain calm.
You can download a template of the flags from our website (http://smallworldland.blogspot.com/2013/01/tiny-tibetan-prayer-flags.html) or locate a picture on the internet.Look for all 5 colors photographed front and center for the best template. Shrink the photo down to the size you like and copy and paste it so you have lots of little flags. Print them out onto fabric transfer paper and iron them onto thin cotton after waiting for the ink to dry completely.
There are two tradtional ways to display the flags. To mount them vertically, glue sets of the 5 colors onto toothpicks and put them in a jar or cup. To hang them horizontally glue strips of them onto embroidery floss or thin yarn. These can either be hang up or mounted between some kind of ends. We made triangles out of blasa wood and sea glass so the flags can be moved around easily.
