Make Straw Flags to Celebrate the Olympics

2 Aug

My friend recently had an Olympics-themed birthday party, and while I must admit I’ve not watched a single Olympic event this this year, I thought I’d join in the festivity with some Olypics-themed straws.

I carved a small circle stamp (you could use an “O” if you have a set of letter stamps as well), and used blue, yellow, black green and red ink to replicate the Olympic rings. Says Wikipedia:

The symbol of the Olympic Games is composed of five interlocking rings, coloured blue, yellow, black, green, and red on a white field. This was originally designed in 1912 by Baron Pierre de Coubertin, the founder of the modern Olympic Games. According to de Coubertin, the ring colours with the white background stand for those colors that appeared on all the national flags that competed in the Olympic games at that time
