Thanks! I got the sticks at Wal-Mart in the craft section. They were next to the popcicle craft sticks. One of the ends was pointy so I stuck it through the top and put a dot of glue on it to secure.

What did you use for the picks and how did they stay on? It looks like you just pushed them through the hole?

Thanks you :o)

Does anyone have a template to put your own design on them? I would like a word document with the right size and slits but able to put your own design or monogram. Does anyone have a template?

Oh my gosh I love those drink umbrellas!! You just gave me the best idea for my own AHR. We're having cupcakes and I was trying to decide how to dress them up. I completely forgot I have leftover cocktail umbrellas from Mexico--now I know what to do with them!

I absolutely love this idea. I think I may use it for escort cards. Just worried about transporting them. I can always just add the stick when we get there.

I've been making and testing a bunch of these lately. Use a heavier weight paper (try 80#) and some glue to hold the sticks and these puppies come out pretty sturdy. I've shipped them to Vegas for a friends bachelorette party and they arrived in perfect condition. And I had people use them at our pool party this weekend and there was only one fatality after someone got cannon balled on in the pool.

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
