This activity is all about self-expression. This tutorial helps walk you through how to Doodle your own flag. Since it's June, we're Doodling the pride flag as a way to celebrate equal rights - not only under the law but also culturally. If you would like to learn more about flags so you can celebrate National Flag Week then check it out here. We can't wait to see what you create so please share them with @3Doodler #3Doodler #WhatWillYouCreate.

What You'll Need

1 Gather your materials!

Make sure you have your 3Doodler 3D pen and all the right colors for your flag, and print out the free stencilprovided.

2 Get the stencil ready

Use the tape to cover the stencil. This will make the removal of your Doodle easier.

3 Create the flapping effect

Use a tissue to help create the illusion of the flag flapping in the wind.

Place the balled-up tissue behind the stencil and Doodle on top. This will create an undulating surface resulting in the illusion of a flag waving in the wind.

4 Doodle your flag

Use the stencil to create your flag. If you choose to make a rainbow, like us, then use the lines on the stencil to create your color stripes.

5 Hit it with the details

Once you're done Doodling the flag, carefully peel it off the stencil. Then go back over the backside of the stencil a little, filling in any holes that might be visible to the eye.

6 Add a flag pole

Now that your flag is finalized let’s add a flag pole. Take a piece of plastic and “weld” aka "attach" the plastic strand to your flag. The length of your plastic strand will determine how tall your flag will fly.

7 Display proudly!

There you have it! A flag ready to be displayed on a desk, in a potted plant, used as a bookmark, or anywhere you might want to show it off as a symbol that you identify with.
