Flower of Drinking Straws




Introduction: Flower of Drinking Straws

About: Since I was 6 years I have disassembled old video players and built them in to something new, to the joy and frustration of my parents! I was 13 when I got my first car and 14 when I got my second.


All you need is some old straw and a pair of scissors!

You can do this after a birthday party, just take the straws that the guests have used, wash them and follow the next steps!
