Sayin’ It With A Flag

I’m not really in to having things thrown at me or leaving a mess on the church steps, so I had to think of something to replace the traditional rice or bird seed. Bubbles wouldn’t be a good substitute; I’ve never been able to open those little bottles without spilling their contents all over myself.So, to give everyone something to hold, I decided to hand out flags:

I just screen printed on some rectangles I cut from muslin and serged the edges to keep them from fraying. Of course, one could substitute rectangles cut with pinking shears if a serger is not available. Each flag was glued to a bamboo skewer (100 for $3 in the barbecue section at the grocery store).

The transparency used to screen print them:

I only made 60, which will not be enough to cover our 200 person wedding and I might not have time to make more. I made 100 quick ribbon wands to supplement the flags, but I feel like a ribbon on a stick might be too silly for most adults. Still, they would make for colorful photographs. What do you think?
