Hi elissae! Thanks so much for your comments! The projects were so fun and really made the wedding details feel completely "ours". Here is a step by step guide to making the flags for the paper straws. Luckily he took pictures of every step!! We bought the straws from Etsy from a seller named HeyYoYo. I just looked and unfortunately they aren't on Etsy anymore but many other shops sells the same/similar straws. The paper was purchased from www.paperpresetnation.com.

 

Step 1: Arrange type/design on the attached template called ATTACHMENT 1. I think you'll need Adobe Illustrator to be able to open it and make changes. Copy the first line all the way down the page so it fills up an 8.5 x 11" page. See ATTACHMENT 2.

Step 2: Using a paper cutter, trim out rectangular flags using the vertical and horizontal trim marks on the template.

Step 3: Place a strip of double-sided tape along the entire backside of the rectangular flag.

Step 4: Fold the flag in half pressing the ends together. Slide the flag onto the straw and secure it at the desired position with the tape. Press the paper together tightly around the straw.

Step 5: Once the flag is secured, cut out a V in the end using the trim mark as a guide.

Step 6: Repeat many, many times!

As I said my husband did this entire project, but it looked fun and relatively simple! Any questions just let me know :)

Hi Dazeydawl, We bought the actual match boxes at the hardware store, then we DIY'd the covers at home. We printed them on 8.5 x 11" kraft paper, cut them out, then used double sided tape to stick it on.
