I'm always crafting and creating things here and there, I tend to look at something and wonder" what would happen if I melted this" or what could this become. so since plastic melts and drinking straws are plastic, I decided to cut a few drinking straws up and put onto a cookie sheet and set in over to melt. and sure e nough they did. I'm since been making cards and using them in my scrapbooking and adding them to picture frames. and this is the picture frame done in straws after being melted.they cool hard and make a cute decoration on anything. they come off the cookie sheet witha flat backing so they are easy to glue onto whatever you want to glue them too.
