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:
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! ) 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.
