Storage Gift Box


This project was actually featured AT Merryn's Crafty Crafted site a long long time ago but i failed to feature the step by step illustration here in my blog.

We're making a Storage Gift Box out of Popsicle Sticks. To start, we need popsicle sticks, laces, cutter, paint and glue.

Just layout the popsicle sticks like this

Cut both tips of each craft sticks using cutter.


Then attach them all using a pair popsicle sticks placed horizontally on top of the craft sticks

Make four.

Glue each corner and form a box.



Put a Popsicle at the bottom part. This will hold our base.

Now place the base



Make a cover



paint the box and add some details



Tadah! You can make one as your Valentine's day gift too!

Popsicle Stick Jewelry Box


This is the second to the last project for this month. I will make a Jewelry Box out of Popsicle Sticks

To start, we need popsicle sticks and Glue sticks

We also need a material that is strong enough for our base. Here we used a vinyl tile.

We will be making an Octagon shape box. So we lay out the sticks octagonally on the vinyl tile and cut the excess from the tile.

Continue to glue the sticks until you have reached your desired height. Set it aside first.

For the cover... layout the sticks again octagonally but this time, without the vinyl tile.

glue the Sticks together and form a pyramid.

Should look something like this...

Cover the remaining open space and add anything on the top to serve as the handle. Here we make use of heart shaped gem.

Cut a small piece of carton and fold it into half.

Glue it between the cover and the box.

Add some details... put lace on the side to make it more appealing.

The popsicle sticks will automatically resembles leaf shape when doing a pyramid style

There you go... A Popsicle Stick Jewelry Box.
