Give Your Guests That Butterfly Feeling…

The creative gals over at Prim & Pixie have shared with us some ideas to pretty up those cocktails for your big event

Dress up your party pitchers by hanging labels with lovely ribbon.  Hosting a bridal shower or planning a wedding?  Give guests that butterfly feeling in honor of the ones you received when you first met your fiance…remember that feeling?  I know, it’s pretty awesome.

This would be an easy DIY project!  First, head over to your local craft store and pick up some cardstock or stationery in the patterns and colors you wish.  Find a stencil you love so you can draw out the butterflies or objects of your choice, onto the paper.  Once you have your first page drawn up, stick the cardstock into your printer and make copies of the objects drawn out. 

Once you’ve finished making your copies, cut them out, fold them in half and cut 2 small slices in the middle.  Open them up, slide them over your straws and wa-la!  Perhaps you could ask your friends or family to help you with this project too.  Then serve a “test round” of cocktails to your helpers and let them be the first to enjoy that butterfly feeling

  1. What a super-cute idea! And with a “test round” being the payback, I would certainly be a helper! ; D

  6. […] the crafty ladies over at Prim & Pixie originally inspired me to create with images of their butterfly straws.  It seemed like an easy enough DIY project, so you know I had to do […]
