Sunshine Straw Toppers

My daughter is counting down the days until summer break. She’s ready for cook-outs and playing in the sprinkler. I may have to plan a little School’s Out, Fun in the Sun party for her. If you enjoy making making cute party decor and have a Silhouette, these Sunshine Straw Toppers are quick and easy to create!

  • Silhouette machine
  • Sunshine cutting image
  • Yellow card stock
  • Hole punch



I’m using the Sunshine image from the Silhouette Design store. Begin by ungrouping the rays from the sun center. Pull the rays over the circle, and then use the weld tool to make the sun and rays one image.


Cut however many sunshines that you need on yellow card stock. Mine are about 2″ a piece.

Use the hole punch to make two holes in each sun. I’ve found that a hole punch will accommodate the size of most straws.

Push the straws through the sun, and that’s it!
