DIY Download: Straw Flags

December 17, 2010

Becca’s back with another adorable download! Enjoy…

- – -

I’ve got another DIY download for you, just in time for all those holiday parties around the corner.  Use these simple straw flags to dress up any beverage (even Santa’s)!

Here’s what you’ll need and how to make them:

Tools: Shown above: (A) Cutting mat  (B) Ruler  (C) Straws  (D) Permanent double-sided sticky tape  (E) X-Acto Knife  (F) Paper

Step 1: Print out the downloadable template onto colored paper of your choice (for a homey, hand-made feel, I used brown Kraft paper)

Step 2: Cut out straw flags along the solid lines.

Step 3: Place double-sided stick tape on the back of one half side of the flag.  Make sure your tape starts from the middle so that it will stick to the straw (and prevents flag from sliding down).

Step 4: Place straw on flag, fold over, and press firmly.  Ta-da!  All done.

I’ve also created three different sayings for you, available in three different text colors – black, red, and green.  With all the paper colors and straw colors out there, the different color combinations are absolutely endless!  Hope these straw flags will add that extra little bit of pizazz to your next party!

Inspired Intern: Icy Blue & Antique Gold

December 14, 2010

This week’s inspiration board features hints of icy blue paired with soft, antique gold.  I love how the crisp, coolness of the blue is set off by the warmth of the golden tones.  There’s something so luxurious about it!

Inspired Intern: Winter White

December 7, 2010

We don’t get any snow this time of the year in sunny southern California, but I sure wish we did!  I remember growing up in Canada and spending my winters making snow angels and having snowball fights.  To me, the very best part of winter is the snow.  Enjoy this week’s inspiration board!
