I'm just wondering if anyone else has had these problems and what helps in case I make another one.

1. the bottom layer is really hard to get glued together since it's all glued on the edges of the popsicle sticks, and it's hard not to glue it to your work surface

2. Also no matter how careful I am I still have wood glue seeping out the edges and looking all weird and messy everywhere.

I used a thin paintbrush to apply the glue. Hope this helps!

Thanks, good idea.  I'm going to eventually try another one. I only got part of the way done with one and stopped and am using it as a bowl. I want the purse to be perfect. It's not as easy as it looks to get the sticks to look so nice on the sides. You've got talent! Or... I don't. Smiley

Oh -- and the other thing to note that it really doesn't require a ton of glue. I used very little and the purse as held up great! I took it everywhere with me on my book tour and it held up totally perfectly.

I bet you'll be able to make it no problem with a little practice! Smiley

I was so very inspired by the projects, however, I have yet to make anything fromthe book as it was meant to be.

My popsicle purse is actually a "cache-pot" for my hanging plants (no handle, or lid/cover). Very sturdy! My next popsicle project is going to be in the shape of a vase.

Cover your work surface with baking paper.  Should peel right off afterwards.

I started my purses on a cookie tin lid. I just applied a little pressure underneath and it popped right off. The paint and stain on mine covered the glue ooze. I was thinking that the lid and bottom could be just glued to the 2 sticks? Or would this not be enough support?
