Popsicle Photo/Note Holder




Hmm... Since I had some few sticks left from my previous popsicle project, and I somehow have a talent (how braggish), I decided that I would make another Ible for it. Who wants to throw our lovely sticks on the bin, anyway?

Step 1: Gather Everything You Need. (There's Just a Few)

1. Your sweetheart popsicle sticks.
2. A foot-long thin, insulated wire.
3. Uhm... Photos/notes.

Yeah, seems so easy to do, right? DEFINITELY.

Step 2: Do Two 'Variation of Popsicle Bombs'.

Click this one.

The first 'bomb' will actually be the frame of the holder. The second one will be used to make the frame stand.

You should arrange the first 'bomb' to give it a square-like symmetry. Hold it vertically, and then slide the middle stick down and just over the stick at the bottom. Repeat this step for the stick at the top of the square(see pic. 2). Add more sticks to make a solid square for the frame (see pic. 4).

For the second stick, refer to pic. 5.

Step 3: Put the Pieces Together... and Enjoy!

See pic. 1 to see how I attached the two sets of sticks (note that I slid up the topmost stick on the frame a little bit. This is where you attach the stand).

Make a knot on one end of the wire. The knot should be at least 3mm in diameter (a size that won't pass through a buttonhole... <_<"). See pic. 2 for this.

Now, do you see gaps everywhere in the frame on pic. 3? This is where you put the wire. With so many gaps like that, and the help of the wires, you can put variety of photo/note sizes in your holder.

    The lattice-work from is pretty cool. I want a source of these things without having to eat huge numbers of popsicles- they look like really cool construction materials.

    I would like to build something that uses, say, 40 popsicle sticks without having to eat 40 popsicles first. Can you buy them on their own as "tongue depressors" or something?

    Oh (I was confused by that 'eat')... I bought those sticks from a craft shop. Try looking for those in your local stores. XD Here in my country, a bundle of around 50 sticks is sold for just Php10.00 ($00.25). Anyways, the cost there in your place would be different.

    In National Book Store it's Php 13.50 the last time I went there. Used up all the popsicle sticks for random projects like the 1st crossbow I made. Here's a funny story on that crossbow I was talking about. I went to test it so I went outside, loaded it and fired. The ammo I used was a homemade skewer, that hit the target (a wall) and bounced of heading to me! I dodged it, but I couldn't see it. A few seconds later I hear a sound like some tin cans crashing down! 

    Nice instructable anyway :) 
    I'm gonna' make a new variant of this!
