Homemade Hawaiian Leis

I saw this post for Homemade Hawaiian Leis from the Crafting Chicks and knew I had to try them out for Miss D's BD party.  I wasn't able to find the large craft punch so I just used the medium-sized one instead.  I didn't punch holes in the center because my hole punch was too large (I'm sure they make smaller ones too), but I just used a tapestry needle to punch the yarn through the paper.  It doesn't make the craft as kid-friendly.  I needle the paper flowers and the kids add the straw pieces, but we starting getting the rhythm down.  I used bright scrapbook paper and neon straws.  So far, I think they look great.  Now I just need to make a TON more.
