Looking for something cute and fun to spice up your summer? Try making these cute little paper umbrellas!
I used the following supplies to make these super easy paper umbrellas:
- Round Paper Punch (or something round to trace)
- Scissors and Paper Cutter
- Paper Piercer
- Terrifically Tacky Tape
- Red River Polar Matte Paper
- Endless Summer by The Digichick Designers
First off, I printed off the papers I wanted to use for the umbrellas and then punched them out using my round paper punch. The particular punch I used was 2 inches in diameter and it worked quite well.
I then took my pencil and drew a line across the back of the punched circle and marked the center of the circle.
Then I cut halfway through the circle to the marked center.
Next, I added some of the tacky tape and overlapped the edges of the circle to form an “umbrella.”
The next step was to poke a hole from the top of the umbrella with my paper piercer for a nice clean hole so the toothpick could be inserted in.
I’m sure you could spice them up a bit with some cute little embellishments, but I kept mine simple and I like how they turned out.
Add them to a drink for an easy and cute way to hang on to summer. It sure has gone fast!
