4th of July Banner

I love Country Living and I LOVE THIS BANNER...But the instructions are no longer available online!

Here is what I have saved in my archives:

From blue crepe paper, cut a strip 8 inches wide and 20 inches long.

From a clean newspaper, cut a narrower strip of paper.
Lay it down in the center of the blue strip, gluing in place.
Repeat, cutting an even narrower strip of red crepe paper, then gluing in place.

Fan-fold across the narrow width of the strip. Fold in half lengthwise.
Open out on either side of the center fold you just made to create a circle; glue. Print “Happy Fourth”; cut out around the letters in a circle with pinking shears. Glue onto rosettes.

Cut 8-inch pipe cleaners in half. Use one to form a loop; slip through another to form another
loop, and so on. When chain is complete, glue a pipe cleaner loop to the back of each rosette, first
passing it through a chain loop, then gluing in place.
