I had a request from a reader to share how to make these, which I thought was a good idea for a blog post. Here you go, Jeannie, this is for you!
For supplies, you will need: plastic drinking straws, a happy stamp and ink pad (or you can write it by hand), washi tape, a scissors and some double-sided adhesive.
Cut the straws down to about 5" in length. Cut a piece of washi tape about 4" long and wrap it around the end of the straw, as shown. Line up the edges of the tape as evenly as possible.
Place a small square of washi tape to the bottom of the spool so the flag won't fall out.
Then, place the flag in a spool of thread. Gift it or keep it for yourself...or do some of each! :)
There you go! One quick little project to brighten someone's day!
Happy, HAPPY Monday to you!
