Popsicle Stick Invention!

(I do not have a better name for this...
Please suggest a better name!)

Function: You place the "invention" on top of a plate with food, and you can put a napkin over it without it touching the food!

Simple idea, yet functional concept.

Changed name to "Popsicle Stick Napkin Tent" as kindly suggested by sherrycayheyhey. Thanks!

Step 1: Get Your Stuff!

This is the $ LONG $ list of materials that you need:

 - Hot Glue Gun

 - 3 Popsicle Sticks

 - Compass (see picture)

 - Pen

 - An empty tape roll, or similar.

 - Standard size sheet.

 - Small piece of 2mm balsa sheet.

("$" stands for "sarcasm")
How about calling it something like "napkin tent" so that the title better tells the function.
Sure thing bro, Thanks!
very good idea :O you think this would work for the microwave too?
Nope. Maybe if you make it with white glue. But I don't know if the wood will burn up...
This just inspired a COMPLETELY UNRELATED idea.....thank you :-)
Nice :) Don't forget to send me the link to that instructable :)
If I get to it before I forget, I will :-) even simple projects of late seem to get pushed aside in my world of complete chaos LOL
Chaos is inspiring.
I don't think you'd find flies in your microwave Bargins Tech
HAHAHA Exactly!
my comment was for the common knowledge of covering anything that has sauce or juice and preventing it from splattering. hence why it would be a good idea for a microwave.
Microwaves "target" the water molecule frequency, so even white glue, having some water in it, would get heated and maybe softened. Hot glue will get "softened" if anything gets heated nearby it, microwave or otherwise. IF you are going to use it in a microwave, fasten it with something other then a water based glue, or other then one that will give off toxins if heated (you may have to find a plastic other then the spool used too). It is a great idea to use it to prevent spatters; but a bit of thought may need to go into it before "modding" it :-)
