These are the crooked little flags I made one of the first times I made little Canada flag beads for Canada Day (July 1st! Happy Canada Day fellow Canadians!). This year I wrote up the instructions so you can give it a shot yourself. Having made better ones since, I can recommend tracing the template out onto the clay you’ll cut on and not cutting through more than an inch thick of clay at a time… cut several out if you need to and layer them.
These make great little slice beads. You can use the same method for other cookie cutter canes – simple block colour flowers or stars are great for this.
