Tuesday Tip - Spring Fling GNO + Party Straws

spring fling girls' night out
Are you looking for a way to get your gal pals together and welcome in spring? I'm thrilled to have a guest post on GigMasters for fabulous ways to pamper yourself and get those toesies ready for sandals...host a Spring Fling GNO!

And speaking of fun accents, I've been coming across clever ideas lately to making paper straws even cuter...

Jenny of Hank + Hunt is sassing them up with tissue fringe...check out her full tutorial.

Layer Cake Shop pairs them with cupcake liners, check out their fun how-to.

Adding hot accents is always a winner...Papermash's free download would be perfect for Mother's Day beverages.

The Knotty Bride shows us how to make adorable felt heart toppers...change the shape to fit your theme, from stars to clouds, the sky's the limit!

But don't let felt intimidate you...a simple paper punch will work just as fabulously! I added a cloud punch  for our Mario Party straws.

  5. I have got to try the fringe! My kids have been OBSESSED w paper straws for a few months now, we can't get enough!

    Just a tip to you ladies - speaking from expereince - don't order paper straws from Etsy - CRAZY overpriced! Look for boxes of 144 for about $6, I get mine from www.graygoose.com but I'm sure there are other vendors w the same prices.

    Thanks for the supercute feature!
