What the straw???

I've been a little curious about this new straw trend. I can't remember the company that sells the actual paper straws for paper crafting (Queen&Co.???) but I found some super cute ones that are used for baking and decor. They are big and pink.

I kind of like the idea of using a straw on a project. Ideas began to swirl around in my brain and I thought it would be fun to try using one on a card. The quest was to find out if the texture of the straw would be too much or just right.

What do you think?

I used some scraps from a leftover My Minds Eye collection and put this card together. I thought to use the straw as part of a pennant. I think it looks fun and adds a completely different look then using a small dowel or toothpick. Fun and youthful! :) 

The stickers (sentiment and stitching) are all from SRM and I love how they help ground the overall design of this card. 

Have you used straws yet??? My next venture is to try them on a layout. FUN!
