Die cutting is so easy! You can check out my die cutting tutorial if you need a more detailed look. Basically you set your die sharp side up on your die cutting platform. Then put the scrapbook paper pretty side down right on top. Then youโ€™ll put a cutting mat on top (not pictured) then crank it through your machine by turning a handle.

The pressure of your die cutting machine pushes the paper into the die cutting out perfect shapes or letters. ๐Ÿ™‚

I cut out the letters & the pennants then I grabbed the Lifestyle Crafts QuickStick Craft Tool. This was my first time using this tool, and I am in love. Seriously! ha! ๐Ÿ˜‰ It made picking up the tiny pieces of paper so easy! How did I ever live without this handy little gadget!?!? ๐Ÿ˜‰

It has a sticky tip to pick up the letters & then a pointy poker that helps get the letter off once itโ€™s where you want it. So helpful! ๐Ÿ˜‰

After I all my letters were glued into place I strung my pennants together using some twine & a sewing needle. Yes, a sewing needle. Works like a charm! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Then I threaded the extra twine on each side inside each straw.

Then I used a piece of washi tape to hold it in place.
