DIY Oscar Party Drink Stirrer


We’re going to be honest, our record for having actually seen any of the Best Pictures nominated for this year’s Academy Awards is not too good. It’s 0 for 8 to be exact. We are, however, familiar with the nominations for the animated feature film…we’re rooting for How to Train Your Dragon 2!

In our sleep-deprived, ‘surrounded by sick kids’ state, a fancy party is not in the cards this year. But, pajamas and a glass of POM champagne or vino sounds fantastic. Our low-key evening does have a DIY, of course. All for good reason – we are going to be the star of our own show. And, you should too. You’re the main character of your life – the leading lady or man. This year, you get your own gold envelope…and a cocktail.

This is such an easy DIY and a fun way to celebrate with girlfriends and sisters. Get creative and funny.






  • Buy or create mini envelopes. We used our Silhouette cutting machine to create gold glitter envelopes.
  • Create and cut mini tags to insert into the envelope. We created ‘drink winner’ tags on Microsoft Word.
  • Use scissors to cut small slits on the top of cute paper straws, and insert the envelope.

You can prepare a speech if you want to…but the drink, it’s is all yours. Cheers to you!
