While we are all oh so ready for the summer temps to get the hell outta town, there is still time to throw some summer celebrations. Poolside, perhaps? Thanks to Martha and her endless craft ideas, here are two nice little ideas to add even more oomph to your party.
If you're like me, you love pretty paper and have a good amount of scraps of it. Why not make some adorable butterfly straws for your next cocktail (or seven?)
Or you can make butterflies to stick on paper lanterns or even make your own mobile. The sky's the limit.
And, another way to use cute paper is to think back to 6th grade and these little jobbies (what are they called?!) and update them to your more mature, party-throwin' age to use as awesome topping holders for a sundae party?
I love this idea and will definitely be using it this weekend for a little ice cream gathering I am throwing for some friends and their kiddos. Hey, maybe I will keep a few empty and kick 'em old school for some party fun.
These were two of the great ideas I found from Martha's 60 Summer Crafts.
What do you do with your old paper? Share some ideas!
