Summer Crafting Series: Paper Flower Straws

This post is part of a Summer Crafting Series I’ve been doing to share ideas and inspiration for the remaining summer months.  These brightly-colored garden varieties were made for me as a gift by my crafting mentoress.  She got the idea from queen crafter Martha Stewart (via MS magazine), and my husband and I used […]
