Graduation Cap Paper Straws



Graduation Cap Straws |


Do you have a graduation coming up in your family? Those grads definitely deserve a big bash for all their hard work, and these graduation cap paper straws are absolutely the perfect accessory for said big bash. Making these mini caps is as easy as 1,2,3 and I can’t stand how cute those mini tassels are!

  • Start by opening design #59831 in Silhouette Studio. As you can see I only used two elements from the design and I added a simple circle to the middle of the main square, for the straw to stick through.
  • The main square is sized down to 2 inches long and 2 inches wide, and the long black strip, which makes the circle of the cap, is sized down to about 4.5 inches long and 1 inch wide.
  • Once you’re happy with how things look, cut your design on black card stock.
  • I assembled my cap using hot glue to attach the circle base and square top.
  • Stick the paper straw through the center of the cap and now you can add the mini tassel, which I made using yellow embroidery thread.

Hello, I'm Brie (like the cheese) and you can find me blogging over at, a place where I can catalog my favorite projects and post anything I'm passionate about. My brain usually has way too many project tabs open at once, but I absolutely love doing anything that deals with DIY crafts, parties, yummy food, paper making, decor, design, and really good photography. I currently reside in Ogden, Utah and have been married for 5 years now to a good look'n hunk, whom I gave my number to at a bakery I used to work at (written on a PB&J sandwich). I also love Dr. Pepper and chocolate (insert flavor here) cupcakes.
