Hey everyone! Sorry for being such a boring blogger lately, but I have been SO ridiculously busy! I constantly have so much to do right now with Christmas, wedding stuff, work, and then I have been sick the last 24 hours to add to all of the stress! Oh well.. on to better things. I have spent some of my (rare) downtime working on yet another DIY project. I have to admit, this is one of my favorites. Let me introduce you to my Cocktail Flags:
I plan on having these cocktail flags behind the bar, so that the bartenders can put one in each drink that is served. I bought 500 of the drink stirrers from Bar Supplies and I would highly recommend them to anyone who was looking for anything bar-related. Their customer service was awesome. Anyway, after I received the stirrers, I made a quick and easy template in Microsoft Publisher, and printed out 500 of these labes (front and back) on regular white cardstock. Then cut them and ran them through my Xyron, which put adhesive on one side, and laminate on the other so that the flags are nice and stiff. For the design, I just used the monogram that I ordered months ago, and blogged about here. We are also using the monogram on the front of the favor boxes, so I think these cocktail flags will help tie everything together nicely. Here is a close-up of the flag:
It doesn't really look that blurry, but my poor camera has seen better days! I think these cocktail flags would work great for many different parties.. holidays, showers, bachelorette parties, and so on. All in all, I am just excited to cross one more thing off of the big bad list! What do you think of my latest creation?
