decorate paper straws and treat sticks with our {free} flags

I was so excited when I saw the new paper straws arrive in the Toronto store the other week. I have been pinning pictures of paper straws from weddings, parties and sweet tables, so I know that I am not the only one who loves them.

One of the great things about paper straws is that it is very easy to personalize them. So with that in mind, I designed a page of pink and red flags as a free download. The colours in the flags match my pink and red vintage label downloads and would be perfect for a Valentine themed party.

As always, this download is for personal use only. No commercial use is permitted.
The flags can be used on paper straws and treat sticks ... here you can see that I added them to cakepops and displayed them on our wooden market serving trays!


Here's a quick overview on how to attach these flags to straws and treat sticks.
Print the download on heavy weight paper on your colour printer.
1. Cut the flags out and fold each flag in half.
2. Add two sided tape to the back of 1/2 of the flag as shown.
3. Peel the backing off the tape. Position the flag on the straw or treat stick and press the flag together starting at the ends and working towards the (fold) straw/stick.

Personalized paper straws and treat sticks ... a simple and creative way to make your next event "your own".  I hope that you try this out! Let me know if you use my flags - I'd love to see them in use!
