    Is there a template for the green paper mint leaves? Thanks.

    The 10.5-inch straws are now available from The Sugar Diva. They have them in white, and are taking pre-orders for the gray stripe. Sorry for the mix up!

    If you want another color of straw, The Sugar Diva has the shorter version, and Specialty Bottle has several shorter bottles that will work with the standard straw length.

    When trying to make this escort card idea happen for a client. After the products (listed in the magazine) were ordered and has arrived, the bottle are too big and the straws barely reach the rim of the glass. We got the 12 oz. sauce bottles from specialty bottle dot com and striped paper straws which measure a standard 7 7/8" . If you plan on doing this for your wedding, I would suggest doing an 8 oz french square bottle that can be found at the same website.
