Hi there! Samantha here, and today I’m sharing a fun little project, sure to brighten up ANY party or gathering! Today, I’m going to share with you how I made some dino-themed straws!

They’re SO adorable! Of course, that’s because I used the CUTE as can be images from the T-Rex Hugs stamp set! I am just still so in love with this set, and I have a million MORE ideas for it!!

So, let’s get to making, shall we?
To start, I stamped the images and colored them with Copic Markers!

Next, I colored them in, being sure to pay attention to details like adding a rosy cheek to the dinos, and a stippled (or dotted) texture with my markers to the volcanoes! I like way the little details add character and a little whimsy to the images!

Once I was happy with the coloring and shading, I fussy cut out the images!

Note: Fussy cutting is now a thing of the past with Sweet images!! Did you know there are now DIES for the sets?! YES!!!! Check them out here!

So, once the images were all cut and ready, I just added a little adhesive to the backs and attached them to the cute, paper straws I found in the dollar spot at Target! (Love that place! Ha!)

What do you think? Would you add some stamps to straws for your next party? I LOVE the way it immediately amps up the adorable factor!! Ha!

Thanks again for spending some of your day with me! Be sure to follow Sweet Stamp Shop on Facebook and Instagram! There’s a TON happening, along with a NEW release and Grand Opening coming up for the Sweets’ new office!! Trust me, there’s so much to see and learn and create!
