Thanks. There are more projects with popsicle sticks, but this one is less messy for the elementary school kids. Have a nice day.
I used Scotch brand transparency tape on this project, but Scotch brand satin finish giftwrap tape works better. For corners, I scored the tape in tight corners, where the diagonal truss piece meets the square sides, and overwrapped the tape on the straw. There is a fine balance between scoring enough and scoring too much. I hope this helps. If you find a way that works well, please let me know.
Thanks for making it. It looks great. Believe it or not, I've never tried it with one color. I like the sleek and clean look.
Thanks for sharing. It looks great.
