How to make a burlap banner for 4th of July

My burlap came in ready-cut rectangles, but if you have a large sheet or strip, cut it into even sized pieces.

Cut a triangle into the bottom of one piece of burlap. Using that piece as a template, cut the remainder so they are all the same.

Cut a piece of the scrap paper into a similar shape, only smaller. Again, use this first piece as a template to create the others.
