I think those are cool, but I would like to have one of those bigger vintage ones that fold up and I didn't think that it would be the easiest thing to make. I probably would have an easier time making a necklace with charm.

but four of those with Sheckies for the tiki hut would be cool

Those would look really nice if printed onto plastic transparencies instead of paper. They'd be washable, last longer, and I think it'd be nice that you could see into your drinks through the "white"/clear portions.
