DIY Christmas paper straw snowflakes

This is one of the easiest crafts.  You can find paper straws almost anywhere, and Echoes of Laughter shows us a fun way to decorate with them.

Paper Straw Snowflakes


Paper Straws
White cardstock
Circle paper punch, or circles cut with scissors
Wood buttons, or any buttons
Glue gun or white craft glue

Cut the straws to the size you want, arrange the straws into a snowflake, glue the cardstock circle in the center of the arrangement and glue the wood button on top of that.  You can even make these into fridge magnets by picking up some magnets from the craft store and sticking it on the back.
