Popsicles are synonymous with summer. We show you a simple painting technique to create gift tags for summer birthday parties, host/hostess gifts, party invites etc. Materials Popsicle printable 1) Card: popsicle invite 2) Tag: popsicle Cardstock Paint Old gift or credit card Scissors Popsicle sticks or tongue depressor sticks Craft glue Hole punch Beads Twine We always find these items useful too: Directions Print out the popsicle sheet on a study type of paper such as card stock. Flip it over so that the print is facing the bottom of the tray. Squirt some blobs of paint onto your paper and scrape them with the edge of your gift card, covering the surface of the paper. Allow to dry overnight. This is only one painting suggestion- go with whatever you like- you could splatter paint your popsicle, colour it with markers etc. If your pages have curled a bit, flatten them under a pile of books. Cut out the shapes and write your message inside. Glue your popsicle sticks on the back, allowing them to dry overnight. (We used a glue gun for an immediate stick.) Punch a hole in your card and lace it onto your present, tying a bow or add a few beads if you like, giving your present to a friend! Pin this idea: Purpose Exploring different painting techniques. Safety Notes We suggest that you use a tray and a smock to protect your clothing and surfaces. Use scissors and a glue gun with care and direct, adult supervision. Cord, yarn etc. can be a strangulation hazard, therefore be sure to use with direct supervision and for its intended purpose. Beads can be a choking hazard, therefore be sure to keep them out of the reach of children ages 0-3 years of age or those that tend to put things into their mouths.
