  • Pair of Scissors


  • empty juice box without the straw recycled
  • small wooden skewer
  • Tyvex envelope recycled; use one sent to you in the mail
  • colored tape masking tape, Washi tape, or duct tape


  • Cover an empty juice box's straw hole with tape.
  • Cut a 4" high by 3" wide triangular sail from a Tyvek envelope (I used an old USPS Priority Mail envelope).
  • Decorate the sail with colored tape and make a little flag. Have fun and add a monogram or number to mark the sail.
  • Push a small wooden skewer through both sides of the box so that it sticks out underneath about an inch or so.
  • Use tape to attach your sail to the skewer leaving about 1/3" of space at the top.
  • Above the sail attach the flag.
