Scribble Shop Challenge: Popsicle Stick Bookmarks


I was recently given the opportunity to participate in the Scribble Shop Challenge.  What exactly IS the Scribble Shop Challenge?  Well, Scribble Shop sent a box of random supplies to a bunch of crafters and asked us to use as many of them as possible to make something (hopefully) fabulous.

I opened my box and found the following:


Metallic Stamp Pad
Dress It Up Embellishments
Mod Podge
Glass Gems
Motivational Quotes
Popsicle Sticks
Colored Pencils

I have to admit…I WAS STUMPED.  Not an ounce of fabric or ribbon or ric rac in my box.  No paint, either.  I was gonna have to think way beyond my comfort zone.  So, one afternoon, I turned the kids loose with the popsicle sticks and the colored pencils.  I told them to go nuts.



They used the stencil and the ink pad on a couple and I cut the rub ons up into funny phrases and put them on a few as well.  (You know I couldn’t get all serious! Winking smile)  I also decided to try one with scrapbook paper.


One they were done, I put a couple of coats of Mod Podge on them to make sure that the ink/pencil/whatever wouldn’t get on the book pages.

Then, I hot glued the gems and embellishments on top of some and drilled holes in a few others and tied them with raffia.  If you want to drill a hole in a popsicle stick, don’t push…just let the drill do the work.  Pushing leads to this:


So, I think I used everything, right?




I love crafts that involve the kids and I think these popsicle stick bookmarks would be perfect to give a teacher or a grandparent.
