It’s the best time of the year! I love Valentine’s Day because I love to do surprises and and give gifts for all the people in my life. Here is a funny (PG-13) Valentine you can make for your lover. It made me laugh. It’s really easy to make, we just removed the “BANG’ flag from a gimmick gun (you can get them here or from a joke store) and then get some fabric the same size and make a “BANG ME” flag and glue it in. It took about 15 minutes to make. When your lover pulls the trigger a flag unfurls with a special message.
Materials Needed: One Gimmick Flag Gun, thin fabric, red and black paint, paintbrush, glue gun.
Step One: Cut out the fabric the same size as the original “Bang” flag.
Step Two: Paint the fabric to look similar to the original flag, let it dry.
Step Three: Hot glue the flag into the gun.
Step Four: Remove the weights from the original flag and fold the bottom of the new flag and hot glue them at the bottom. Ours didn’t seem to need it but it depends on the fabric you are using. Et voila, you’re ready for Valentine’s Day.
