One of my favorite designs to create since opening our shop many years ago has been straw flags. I created this wonderful free printable collection of straw flags to celebrate any occasion and prove how obsessed I was with this type of design.
I have been convinced until recently, though, that straw flags should take the form of a rectangle or pennant flag design. They need to be wrapped around the top of the flag and jut off in one direction or the other. When I started brainstorming ideas for a new free printable St. Patrick’s Day straw flag idea, the pot of gold kept returning to my sketch pad. It wouldn’t take the shape of a flag or rectangle, though, no matter what I did.
So, instead of sticking with the traditional, I created these festive free printable St. Patrick’s Day straw toppers in a new “modern” straw flag design. Each topper measures a 2 inch circle and can be easily cut out with your Round 2 Inch Punch. Each pot of gold topper has a St. Patrick’s Day themed message for drink sippers to enjoy.
To create your straws, download your free printable St. Patrick’s Day Straw toppers. Cut out each pot of gold using your Round 2 Inch Punch or scissors.
Attach to a green striped paper straw using washi tape on the back of the straw and topper. You could also glue (if you don’t mind waiting for it to dry) or use two Glue Dots.
We created these St. Patrick’s Day shamrock shakes to sip with our straws. You can also try making a green punch or just dye milk green with green food coloring.
Create your own St Patrick’s Day straws for your St. Patrick’s Day celebration, snack time fun or give as a St. Patrick’s Day treat. You could even use your circle cut outs to make cupcake toppers. It’s a wonderful way to get into shamrock kind of mood.
