Print and cut out the 2 flag patterns without the 24 spoke wheel from the template and 1 flag pattern with the wheel. Apply glue along the extra parts of the flag with the 24 spoke wheel.
Attach the 2 other flag patterns with the glued parts; 1 on each side. Make sure to match and align the colors of all 3 patterns. Start to create small and even accordion folds on the glued patterns.
Take the accordion folded paper and squeeze the green side to gather all the folds together .Take a small piece of clear tape and wrap it tightly around the gathered folds to keep the joint secured.
Now take 2 Popsicle sticks and apply glue on both sides of the stick, only along half of its length. Now glue them on both sides of accordion folded pattern.
Once the glue is dried bring the 2 Popsicle sticks adjacent and join them. Use glue to join the sticks together. And done! Just remember to create small, even and neat accordion folds.
