How To:

Step 1 Print the Summer Straw Topper Template and cut out.

Step 2 Punch holes where marked, fold tabs back and slide shapes onto straw before placing it into your drink.

Step 3 Stack fruit on wooden skewers (anything you can put on a stick works—think melon balls, berries, or grapes). Place skewers in drinks, or set them out for guests to choose.

Step 4 Finish drink with other extras like paper umbrellas or fruit slices (fresh or candy versions), slit with a knife so they can perch on the rim.

Step 5 Sip in style.
