I hung this in my room this year and it looked so much better than I thought it would. I printed it out, laminated it and took some thin black ribbon and folded the top - backward over the ribbon. I put about one inch between each letter and I left enough on each end to tie about two bows. BEFORE you cut them out, look at the flag and be sure not to cut the paper off at the top. This extra paper gave me something to fold over the ribbon and hot glue together. I am sure that there is a better way to do it. Maybe staple ? If you have a better idea, let me know. In any event, the end result was cute. Enjoy!
