Ribbon Flab

I've seen these out and about on the web lately, so I decided to give it a go.  My Mom's friend had given me a bag of goodies (trim and lace) she was getting rid of that was perfect for this project.  

I alternated trim and strips of fabric I ripped (about 1 inch).  I simply tied it to the top of a dowel.  I didn't do the exact number of stripe, but I did start with the white (which sits next to the blue).  
 For the blue I just glued some buttons and pearls onto a blue piece of fabric I had hot glued it to the top of the flag.  I did read when you hang flags like this the blue goes on the left (union first).  I also bought some star fabric I'm going to use for my next one.
 For the stripes that extend out of the blue I just hot glued them to the back.  Again, I'm not sure on my numbers, but I know it starts and ends with red.
 It was a super simple project, and I love how it turned out.
