    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.
