Next, attach the dowel to the American flag with double-sided glue to create a handle. You can wrap a piece of clear tape around the flag and stick it where they meet to keep it in place.

Create An Origami Bookmark Corner

To make this idea, you need to print a coloring page with a picture of the American flag. Make sure the design isn’t too big because you’ll be folding it into a small corner.

You color the American flag with red stripes, white stripes, blue background corners, and white stars. Cut a square from the colored flag design with a suitable size of 6×6 inches. Fold the square diagonally to create a triangle, and leave the colored side facing out.

Take the bottom two corners of the triangle, fold each corner to meet the top point of the triangle, and then unfold them. Now, fold the top point of the triangle down to meet the bottom edge, creating a smaller shape with a lid.

Take the two corners that you folded earlier and fold them into the flap that fits you. This will create a pocket that slides into the corner of the page, like in the illustration below. To ensure the folds stay in place, you can apply a generous amount of glue along the edges of the inside of the bag.
