I love paper garlands, they are a great way to make a space festive. These dotty flags were made with Paper Source http://www.paper-source.com/ paper.
The paper is double sided so it looks great from both sides. The paper was folded over about 1 1/2" and then glued down over string. Instead of putting the folded edge in the back I put it in front so a visable contrasting band can be seen.
