Everyone & their muther has a tutorial on making apple pies in miniature on YouTube. I wanted to set these pies apart from the teeming masses so I included li'l American flags. These I made by shrinking down (via my pal Photoshop) one of those American flags that come attached to toothpicks. They are attached to bits of (Christmas ornament) wire. Wire gives me more flexibility and positioning possibilities and a toothpick would have been too fat/ wrong scale. The last step was adding a layer of Triple Thick for shine, to protect the paper and make it a little more substantial.
