CRAFTS MATERIALS NEEDED:

Take the blue paper …
… and fold it in half by bringing the upper part over the lower one.
Fold again in half by bringing the left part over the right one this time.
Unfold, because we need only the crease at this point.
Bring the right upper corner to the center.
Do the same for the left corner, like this.

Turn over …
… and fold the strip upward.
… like this…
… until it became flatten on the other direction.
Fold the lower parts upward…
… like this.
Open again until it became flatten on the other direction.
Take the upper corners and stretch out.
Now the boat is ready.
Let’s make the flag. Cut a rectangle of white paper…
Draw the contour of the blue part…
… and the stars.
Start filling this part with blue color.
Use red color to draw the lines on the rest of the flag.
Now we assemble the components. Put the needle through the flag…
and stick the tip in the middle of the boat, like this.
The boat is ready to be used as a decoration or as a toy.
