Handmade Holidays

I've never been famous for my handmade treasures but this year I am so excited for the holiday season to begin that I've been dreaming up some ways to make the season a bit more unique.  I purchased a big pile of Arabic newspapers from the 1920's that I found in an antique store (they're actually Catholic Arabic Newspapers from Lebanon).  I am planning to wrap the majority of my gifts in this paper - its so perfect in its imperfection - slightly yellowed with beautiful script that looks like an art form to me.  Does anyone know how I could make a lovely flag banner like the one below?  It's so whimsical and would be a fun project.  Have a lovely weekend!
