Also, the raffia curls much more than this, but again- mine was packed to and from Mexico- so they straighten out a little via travel. Let me know if you have any other questions!
And they really aren't that hard to make- I think two of us made 6 of them in about an hour and a half and we were girl talking the whole time- so you know how that slows things down!
Great job! I think I'm going to try making these too...they look awesome!
