What makes a simple kite fly?

Q:

Hi there Tim,
You seem to know a lot about kites, and I wanted to know what the aerodynamics of a simple diamond shaped kite were and what you would need to build one. :) thank you.

A:
A common 2-part query, so the answers are ready-made on two existing pages of this site:

How Does A Kite Fly and

The MBK Simple Diamond.

That should be plenty of help!
