Step 1: Cut Out the Shape
Step 2: Install the Frame
Step 3: Attach the Line and Tail
Create a diamond-shaped template by drawing a 26 x 33 in. cross on a sheet of paper then connecting the tips. Cut out
the template, tape it to the Tyvek, then cut the kite material to shape. Use felt-tipped pens to decorate the material.
Lay the kite material face down, then position the struts in place. Use strapping tape to secure the tips of the kite material to the tips of the struts.
Poke a small hole through the kite material where the struts intersect, feed the kite string through the hole and securely tie it to the both struts. Attach four tails of nylon ribbon to the end of the long strut.
