Thumbs up Recipe Card Holders

FOR 3"X5" RECIPE CARDS

What You Need


35 Popsicle sticks
School glue or tacky glue
Wax paper or plastic grocery bags
White satin ribbon
Rubber stamp (small simple design such as star or heart)
Stamp pad
Silk flower
3x5" Index cards, lined


How To Make It


Protect your surface by using wax paper or plastic grocery bags. You can use newspaper, but I find that the project tends to stick to it and the newspaper print transfers to the Popsicle sticks.
Glue 11 Popsicle sticks long sides together in a row. (see Photo 1)
Glue 6 Popsicle sticks long sides together in a row. (see Photo 1)
Glue 2 Popsicle sticks long sides together in a row. (see Photo 1)
Stack and glue 8 Popsicle sticks on top of each other. (see Photo 2)
Create another stack of 8 Popsicle sticks.
Take one stack of 8 Popsicle sticks and glue to the (11 stick) longest row, along the longest side. (see Photo 3)
Repeat with other stack of 8 Popsicle sticks.
Glue the row of 2 Popsicle sticks at one end of the recipe holder to create the bottom. (see Photo 4)
Glue the row of 6 Popsicle sticks on top of the stacks of 8 Popsicle sticks, and adhering to the bottom edge of the recipe holder. (see Photo 5)
Turn recipe holder over. Glue 2 Popsicle sticks together to create a V shape and attach to the top of the recipe holder to create a hanger. (see Photo 6)
Let dry completely.
Rubber stamp design on ribbon and at the top of the recipe cards. Add a silk flower if desired.
Give this useful present to your mother, aunt, grandmother, or anyone who likes to cook!


Tips

Ask at your local craft store if you can have the flower blooms that fall off on the floor. Generally my children watch for the employee sweeping the floor and ask them for the flowers they have swept up.
Felt or construction paper could be used to make the flowers as well. Attach the child's picture on the front of the holder for a decoration that Mom will love. You may wish to cover the picture with Con-Tact paper to protect it from food splashes.

Another idea for decorating would be to use the "Woodsies" shapes to create designs on the front of your recipe holder. If you put the points of 4 hearts together, it creates a flower. Add a tiny circle in the middle for the stamen.

30 Jumbo Popsicle sticks (about 3/4" x 6")

Wax paper or plastic grocery bags
Woodsies in hearts or other shapes

4x6" Index cards

You may also wish to rubber stamp a design on the wood and color in with markers or paint.
