im sure im not the only one who made those popsicle stick pencil holders as a wee child. well a couple of weeks ago, my mom was cleaning out the craft closet and i saw a big box of those sticks.. so being the bored craftster i am, got some glue and popped this baby out. i feel like a mega nerd for it, but i actually use it!
i tried to take the picture at an angle so you could see how i made it.
but there are soooo many ways you can change it to your liking, and hey, in the process of making one, you might even get nostalgic.
seriously though, if you dont like the wood theme, you could always paint it and slap a stencil or some polka dots on there.
