flavor flags

Did you see these adorable favor bags in the latest issue of Martha Stewart Living?  Fantastic right!?  These would be perfect for any 4th of July celebration!  I searched for a better photo online (it's not even on marthastewart.com yet!?), but came up empty handed so I just scanned the magazine.  For the ease of your eyes, I have re-typed the how-to/instructions below.

Gift To Go - Flavor Flags
A spirited holiday celebration calls for a fun take-home treat, like this goody bag of candies arranged to resemble the American flag.  Start by partially filling a 2-by-10 cellophane bag with blue candies to stand in for stars.  Then add red and white candy sticks to mimic stripes.  Tie the bag with red waxed twine, and don't be surprised if you catch yourself humming "Stars and Stripes Forever". 
Cellophane bags, 2" by 10", $6 for 100, groovycandies.com. Blue sixlets, $6 per lb., economycandy.com. Cocoa stirrers, in Vanilla and Cinnamon, $8 for 5 oz., hammondscandies.com. Waxed linen thread, in Country Red, $13 for 100 yd., caning.com.
