      I haven't a clue. but you might look for just a stick and then cut a slit in the end. I'm wondering if maybe a florist or something would have them.

        Try a floral supply . I believe they sell them in bulk. Good luck!

          How pretty! Have you tried EBay? I bet you'll have to buy the long sticks and cut them down.

            Did you try some of these searches: Natural Tonkin Bamboo, Bamboo Canes, Bamboo Sticks, Bamboo Poles, Bamboo Flower Sticks
            A lot of the searches lead to china. The closest thing i found to it was the 'bag handles on ebay
            Ebay Bamboo handles
            Hoping my New Year's wish comes true.

              Would these work?

              Otherwise a craft or floral supply place seems to be your best bet.

                I used bamboo for my invitations. I bought them at Michaels. The bamboo rods were about 60" I think and they were only about $8.00 each. Hope that helps.

                  those are beautiful maybe i will make our programs to look like that.

                  hhmm that picture looks as if the bamboo stalks are cut lenghtwise and glued to the paper - does that seem right?
