Straw Flags Tutorial- Halloween Fun

Halloween Straw Tags


These fun straw flags can go on paper straws or any plastic straws. A few years ago you couldn't find paper straws anywhere. I see them everywhere now! Hobby Lobby, Joanns, Home Goods (my favorite store in the world), and even Walmart!

Just print and double stick tape or use a glue stick to add to the straw. For any party fun. You can do a wjhole pack of straws with one sheet!





Supplies
One digital collage sheet of Straw Flags. 
I have many designs to choose from!
Scissors
Photo paper or a glossy Card Stock
Glue stick or double stick tape
Paper or Plastic Straws


PRINT 
Home Printing
The full printing looks best printed on photo glossy or matte paper. It gives the best quality and weight.
8.5 x 11 JPEG format at 300 dpi.
I have two papers I love
The dollar tree paper works wonderful if you want a glossy beautiful image. (I know..DOLLAR TREE...It is fantastic!) The dollar tree paper also has blank on the back!
 Kodak gloss paper works great. It prints perfect. Not  glossy, but with the perfect amount of shine for crystal clear images...They also have the perfect amount of thickness for a nice professional looking print. 
These can also be printed at your local printing center that prints on full sheets such as 
(Kinkos...Office max....Staples..etc...on glossy card stock looks great.....)

Just PRINT....CUT!!

Glue or double stick tape to your straw.
If you are using a glue stick. Make sure to get it glued well! 
Fold around straw.

There you have it. Easy Peazy and adds a great look to your party scape or table!

Here is what the digital sheet looks like before printing!
