Bracelets made from Popsicle sticks soaked in water ~ Such a great idea ~ SO COOL! Popsicle stick bracelets: Soak in water for 3hrs and place in cup to dry. Modge Podge your favorite paper to it. Update---12/3/2011--- I felt like soaking was better than boiling but some sticks may take longer to soak then others. The shorter, thinner ones are going to be harder to bend so just work them gently, re-soak and repeat.
