Remember Popsicle stick baskets from when you were young? We used to make them all the time. I found this easy to follow popsicle stick basket on Ikatbag, using cardboard for the base, but you could create the base using the method described on the Initial Plaque, by simply laying the sticks one of the top of the other horizontally, and hold them together by sticking 2 sticks vertically to the outer edges with glue.

You will need:

  • Popsicle Sticks
  • Craft Glue
  • Cardboard for the base (if using)
  • Paint (if using)

Alternatively you could create a square box using the same principles and create a lid for the top so you can store all your treasures!

#8. Popsicle Stick Boats
