Simple Touch to Make Valentine’s Day Special- Glitter Heart Paper Straws

I’m one lucky lady! I have not just one, but three loves of my life! Don’t worry, I’m not stepping out on the hubs. Quite the opposite in fact! My favorite place to be is right here at home with the hubs, my little lady, and the little mister. Never did I imagine I would have enough room in my heart to love all three so much.

So rumor has it that Valentine’s Day is creeping up on us and after all of the hub-bub of the holidays, I have to admit that I’m not one to go crazy when it comes to decorating for Valentine’s Day but I do try to find a few simple ways to make it special each year for the ones I love. This year I plan to make my loves a special Valentine’s Day breakfast and thought I’d throw in a little handmade detail to make it a little extra special and these (really easy) glitter heart paper straws are going to be perfect for sipping milk at breakfast or would make a perfect addition to cookies and milk for a simple Valentine’s Day dessert!

The supplies for this are super simple! You’ll need a sheet of glitter cardstock or scrapbook paper, paper straws (Walmart and Target both carry these now), and something to cut out your hearts with. I used my new Silhouette Cameo (…squeeeeel!) but you could also get a heart shaped paper punch or even make a quick template and cut them out by hand.Valentine's Day Paper Straw toppers

I found a heart on a google image search and traced it in Silhouette studio to make my heart shaped cut file. Then I adjusted it to 2 inches wide and copied and pasted it to make a row of hearts for the Silhouette to cut out.heart silhouette cut file

Once the hearts were cut out, I gathered up some paper straws and attached them using a small line of hot glue. You will want to be sure that there is enough room for someone to drink but high enough on the straw so they don’t get wet.glitter heart straws for Valentine's Day
