How-to: Create Colorful Party Wands

Warmer weather means time to create fun and quick projects for summer weather! What better way than to create a pocketful of wishes (confetti) and party wands. The whimsical patterns in Dear Lizzy's Happy Place collection and some American Crafts party straws made putting these together a snap.
