Camp S’more Series: Crafty Tutorial

Camp-S'more-Party

Today I’m showing you all how to make a simple no-sew project using Ink and Arrow’s newest fabric line, Camp S’more! When I saw this fabric, I knew that making s’mores was going to be a must, so I made a bunch of fabric flag skewers to make my Quick and Easy S’more recipe even better!

Scroll down and learn how to enter to win enough fabric to make my quilted tablecloth!

Flag Topped Skewers!

Supplies:

  • Skewers
  • Scissors (optional)
  • Rotary cutter, acrylic ruler and cutting mat
  • Diagonal cutting pliers
  • Fine point marker
  • Glue stick
  • Washi tape
  • Small diamond 45-degree ruler (optional)

Step 1: Cut your skewers down, using a pair of diagonal cutting pliers. I cut my sticks to various lengths, from 5 1/2 to 7 inches long.

Step 2: Use a diamond shape 45-degree template tool to create 5 1/2″ wide diamonds. I used washi tape to make marking out 2 1/4″ triangles quick and easy. Once you have one-half marked, then flipped the ruler around to create the other half of the diamond. Nestle the next diamond shape up with this one and repeat.

If you don’t have this handy little ruler, use poster board and a clear ruler to create one. My finished flag is 1 7/8″ tall and 2 1/4″ wide

Step 3: Use your rotary cutter or shears to cut out your diamond shape flags.

Step 4: Use a glue stick to cover half of your fabric diamond with glue and place your skewer in the center. Carefully fold the unglued side over onto the glue. Making the edges match up as best you can, resist the urge to fuss too much with the flag, the raw edges will fray easily.

Step 5: Use a rotary cutter or scissors to clean up the edges.

Step 6: Grab the ingredients for a big plate of s’mores and treat your family for a fun desert. Or, better yet, make these for you next potluck, these are a great treat to make ahead and large quantities because (IMO) they are even better the next day. Once they cool off and set up, they are easy to eat off the stick and are no longer
a sticky snack. A party plus!
