Celebrate Grandparents Day with a Handmade Popsicle Stick Magnet Picture Frames

Celebrate Grandparents Day with handmade Popsicle stick Magnet Picture Frames! Grandparents Day is the first Sunday, in September, after Labor Day. You still have plenty of time to help your kids make this fun and creative hanging picture frame, that the “grands” will cherish!
Materials Needed:

 

 

Instructions:

1. Begin by gluing two Popsicle stick frames. Let dry. We chose to use painted Popsicle sticks but unfinished Popsicle sticks will work, too. Or you can paint your own Popsicle sticks and make it really colorful!

2. Cut out coordinating scrapbooking paper and tape it onto the back of the frames.

3. Add little accents like shells and buttons to the side of the frame. Use large pop-up glue dots or tacky glue to hold it all in place.

4. Cut a long piece of ribbon, dovetail the end and tape to the back of the frames. To dovetail a ribbon fold it in half and cut it at a 45 degree angle.

6. To make the bow for the frames: Cut a 24” piece of Bowdabra Bow Wire and fold it in half. Lay it into the Mini Bowdabra. You’ll have a loop at one end and two loose pieces at the opposite end.

12. Gently pull the bow out of the Mini Bowdabra. Separate the two loose ends of the Bowdabra Bow Wire and bring them around to the back of the bow. To tie off the bow, pinch the Bowdabra Bow Wire securely against the bow. Twist the bow 4 to 6 times in a clockwise direction.
