Using Paper Straws

Paper Straws

So I think I might have an addiction to Paper Straws! They are just so cute and can be used in so many ways! I wanted to put together some of my favourite uses of Paper Straws for you, as most people don’t realise they can be used in so many amazing ways! All the individual pictures are below, with links to the fabulous creators!

Paper Straws in all sorts of colours and patterns are available to buy for just £2 per pack at https://www.icedjemsshop.com/product-category/paper-straws/

Bakerella has the most awesome blog ever! I am constantly drooling over her cake pops and other goodies, when I saw her post Play Food I had to do a double take! These awesome Cake Stand Cookies are made by putting a Cake Pop Stick through the centre, then cutting up a paper straw and using it to keep up the layers. The full tutorial is on her blog here: http://www.bakerella.com/play-food/.

Paper Straws Milk Bottles

The Hostess with the Mostess blog is a fantastic resource for party ideas and inspiration, this Sweet Shoppe Birthday Party post  is so gorgeous! I absolutely love the idea of filling Mini Glass Bottles with Milk and decorating the straws with Mini Donuts, cute overload!
