      I got the white ones at Party City.  I looked every time I went to the supermarket or liquor store and only fond striped ones or wooden ones.  I finally found them at Party City - they had a bunch of options.  The white ones were a little more money - about $4 for 250.  The other options were the same price for like 1,000.

          There are awesome!!  Great job.  May I ask what size labels you used?  This is definitely a great save!

            coconoir - I used file folder labels - these were Avery 8066.  They were a little longer and i just trimmed off the edges to make them the right size.  I had to play around with test prints to make sure I wasn't printing on the part I was cutting off.

             

            Good luck!

                    No problem at all!  I've never uploaded a template so hopefully this works OK.

                      Those are very cute!

                       

                      We did a similar thing for my mom's wedding a few years ago - she married a man from Australia, she's Canadian, so we made Aussie and Canadian flags on toothpicks and stuck them in the cake when the cake was cut. It was very cute!
