Is it the Last Straw???

Happy New Year!!

Hope everyone had a great and safe one!

I am going to spend a good portion of today crafting and cleaning in my craft room!
What a great way to kick off the New Year!

I wanted to show you what I "stirred" up yesterday ....

A*Muse Studios is hosting a challenge on creative ways to use our straws ... so I had to jump in!

I cut the straws into thirds and then threaded twine trough them.  Added a little bit of crystal clear glaze to adhere them and then needed a flame.  I looked in my dies and WOW ... the poinsettia leaf looked JUST like a flame!  Added a banner and sentiment with pistachio and kraft cardstock.

Do you know how tough and durable our paper straws are??  They are wonderful for all of your craft projects and they are food safe.  Pick some up today .....

Looking forward to crafting and sharing more with you in 2013!


  1. This is great! The straws are cool as candles!

  2. Super cute - and the leaf die for the flame is perfect. Don't have any straws "yet" but on my wish list.

  3. This is AWESOME! Great card, Chelsea! Such a creative use for the straws and the leaf die!
