They are a thick twine that is waxed to make them stiff. I have never tried to sew threw them..but I would think you could.

does anyone have any of these they'd like to destash? i was going to order them from the site but the shipping would've been more than the stamens! i might go check out michaels later, but if anyone here has any they want to part with, i'm super interested. looking for white and blue.

thanks!

They have white ones at michaels for sure...found mine in the wedding department, not sure about blue but wonder if they could be dyed or painted??

A poster mentioned that you cold order them in colors. Locally , though , I have only ever been able to find them in white. Some are bigger than others. You need to get the smallest ones. As I mentioned , I painted mine. You can paint them with just about anything.....I have even used nail polish. The easiest way ( for me at least ) was to color them with a sharpie , AFTER they were attached to my bug. This way , I could get to all sides and they were on something that could hold them up while they dried.
