I love candy stripe paper straws and for a recent celebration we created some sweet little straw flags. These were featured on my blog and are really fun and so simple to create. Use them at your engagement, wedding, bridal shower or anywhere else really! You can personalise flags with guest names, personal messages … whatever you can think of really.

You only need a few bits and pieces to create your own personalised straw flags and they look so cute when you are finished.

You will need:

  • Printer
  • Plain, coloured or patterned A4 paper to suit your style
  • Scissors and/or craft knife. Ruler and cutting mat
  • Double sided tape

Step one:

Fill in your template with whatever you want on both sides of each flag.

Go with whatever best suits your celebration … your names, your wedding date, “Celebrate”, “Love”, your favourite places, artists or even leave one side blank. The sky’s the limit!

Step two:

Print it onto your chosen paper.

Step three:

Cut the paper along the template lines using your scissors or craft knife, ruler and cutting mat combo.

Step four:

If you have decided to use card stock rather than paper you will need to roll each flag around a pencil or one of your straws, similar to how you would curl a ribbon. This will help get a nice round edge around the straw rather than having a pointed part.

Step five:

Now attach your double sided tape down one side on the inside of the flag.

Step six:

Wrap your cute little flag around the straw, line up the ends and then press together. Press to crease the flag so it is attached to the straw (you can use your fingernails to get the crease right).

Step seven:

Neaten up the end by cutting a small triangle and viola! A gorgeous straw flag to be enjoyed by all!
