Cut a rectangle of fondant; mask off stripes using some tape and airbrush on the red color. Don't have an ab?...then paint it on using gel color thinned w/alhcohl (uuuggggg! never could spell that word!).
For the dk blue section again either ab or paint; then cut stars w/a small cookie cutter and lay them on (adhere them using just a bit of water brushed on the back).

You can make the stars with a scrapbooking punch, if you find one the right size. Roll the fondant really thin and let it dry for a couple of minutes before you use the punch.

If you put star-shaped masking onto the white fondant before spraying/brushing the blue field, you can then carefully remove the stars, leaving white stars behind. If you're brushing, you have to be really careful, though, around the edges of the stars.
