So I have seen the paper straws at Archiver's (before they closed ), but wonder how to use them for scrapbook pages. Have any of you used them and if so, how?

used them in a class at a CKU. You can cut them and use them for almost anything. Like a flower stem, or line the cut pieces up to make a border or attach a banner to it,etc.

I'd love to see some samples of them being used on a layout. I did a quick search and didn't come up with anything. I'm thinking it's not something I need right now!

I have not used them personally, but have seen them used as petals on flowers... looked cute. They were fastened on in a rosette shape, with the outside end cut on the bias.

I love using paper straws in my layouts. I've really gotten into using them in a wide variety of ways. I have gathered a wide selection of colors and designs because I like them so much. If you check out my gallery, you can see examples of how I used them.
