STEP FOUR: Create the hat and flag

Now it's time to make the hat and flag for your star people! Trace the hat onto your desired coloured cardstock and decorate. You can cut out strips, use a star hole punch, or get some additional supplies to make your own design. Whatever you choose! Start with laying everything down to make sure you're happy with it before glueing it into place.

Next, cut out a square shape on white paper and a strip of cardstock in your desired colour for the flag pole. Use markers to design the flag as shown below.
