Get a piece of paper to form the body of your kite.
Traditional Diamond Kite Tape four pieces of paper together. But you have to tape them together the right way! Tape the two on top together, then tape together the two on bottom. Tape them on each other, making sure they're secure7
To cut a diamond shape on the paper, simply cut the four corners off. Take a look at the design below for a good idea on proportions. The diamond needs to be a little bottom heavy -- about 3" from the top is where your two left and right corners should lie.
Tie two sticks together. To make sure they're in the right spot, line them up with your paper first. Make the tie as tight as possible! It should be securely knotted and the excess string cut off. Any string that will keep it in place will do the job.

Pierce four holes in the diamond-shaped paper at each corner. Thread a string through each hole and around each pipe cleaner or stick. Leave a bit extra on the top to thread a ribbon on, if desired later. Knot the stick in place to the kite itself.
Tie a string to the right and left hand sides of the horizontal stick. Then tie the string to the center of that string for your flying line. This string needs to be as long as you need to be for flying!
