When we were at the library a couple of weeks ago, someone left behind five or six paper handmade flags made with tiny straws. They were adorable! We all loved them and I knew, as soon as I saw these vintage straws, that we'd make our own flags. It seemed fitting to share the project on Veterans Day. I think they'd make cute cake decorations, or you could throw on some panty hose, a head scarf, and perform your own version of Little Edie's flag dance. Here's what we used: straws, crayons, pencil, tape, scissors, paper.
We cut the flag to whatever shape we wanted, decorated it, and taped it to the straw. Easy! You could tape the flag a little lower if you wanted to drink out of the straw.
