Question How do I make this?

My son and daughter has made these out of one sheet of paper, but someone has made them out of two fabrics. ANY idea of how to go about making these? After some time the paper ones sag and look goofy. I would hate to have that happen if I make these for others.

I'd love to hear your ideas. A quilt shop is offering a make and take class on these. Do you think they'd share the secret over the phone? I've run out of time to take a make and take this weekend.

Try fusing 2 layers of fabric together and using those. Might have to try this myself.

edit: LOL!! should have watched the video first. I assumed it was the one done with paper!

Terial Magic would probably work to keep the fabric stiff.

They are easy to do with paper. We would have kids make them and hang them all the way down our hallways. It was kinda neat to see hundred's of them hung.

I don't know how you'd store these or just make them yearly.
