Patriotic Candy Flags

I LOVE July 4th! It is quite possibly my favorite holiday for many reasons.  I have always been a self proclaimed lover of all things patriotic...no wonder I married a military man!  Even my favorite song is the National Anthem (Star Spangled Banner)

Here are some cute candy American "flags" that would be perfect for a little July 4th treat.  
All you need are some blue candies (I used m&m's from Fresh Market but you can find solid colored candies at just about any craft store) and some peppermint sticks.  The rest is pretty self explanatory :)





Aren't these fun...and yummy!?

I saw a similar craft in Martha Stewart Living but I changed mine up a little because I had never heard of the candies she used!
My mind is filled with all kinds of other July 4th crafts...do you have any to share?

On a side note, my sister in law is having a $25 Visa gift card giveaway! Head on over to enter!
