Just when I thought I’d had quite enough, thank you, of cupcake and candy papers… I was working on a story for our June issue and came up with these straws… and I must say – they are so cute! I love them. The very week we shot this story with photographer Sang An, I made them for a birthday dinner and it was a perfect instant table decoration. The how-to is very simple, it just involves making a small hole in each paper and sliding them onto the crimped part of a bendy straw. Below is a how to for the more elaborate version, where the papers are folded and trimmed into petal shapes.
Happy summer everybody! For more simple entertaining ideas, have a look at our gallery.
