All you need: a few rolls of washi tape and vintage straws.
Once you have your supplies all set to go, all you need to do is wrap a piece of washi tape around each straw, cut the edges to resemble a flag, and enjoy your patriotic accessories!

When we started the blog back in March, we really didn’t ever think about page views and site statistics. We were just so thrilled to finally have a fun outlet for our creativity and projects. Blog stats were just not on our minds! We figured we would at least have a couple readers (hi mom!)..but never really thought we could reach so many of you guys out there!
If you follow us on Instagram (@diyplaybook) you may have noticed our little celebration over the weekend. We hit 100,000 pageviews! Now we know that there are some Hall of Fame blogs out there that average way more hits than that, but for us it was a big milestone!
So we wanted to say CHEERS and THANKS to you guys…our #1 fans. We’ve received so much support and love from friends & family, and even from new friends we’ve made because of DIY Playbook.
Now, we’re two gals that believe in celebrating all the accomplishments in life…big or small. So this calls for a little celebration, and every par-tay calls for a cocktail!
Here’s a recipe for one of our favorite Summer drinks…a refreshing, minty mojito!
