Foldable Paddle Pop Stick Card

This paddle pop stick folding craft is simple and mess free! You can draw a treasure map (for the template version click here), a card for Mum, Dad or a friend, or even an inspirational quote. 

Materials

  • 8 Jumbo Paddle Pop Sticks (find in craft/discount stores; I purchased a pack for $2 at Kmart)
  • Masking tape (must be masking tape and not other types of sticky tape)
  • Scissors
  • Drawing pens
  • Ribbon (optional)

Instructions 

I’ve done this with a group of children before, and I found this was the best way to do/explain it:

  1. Arrange the 8 paddle pop sticks in pairs.
  2. Cut masking tape to a little less than the paddle pop stick length.
  3. Join each pair together with tape.
  4. Turn all joined pairs of paddle pop sticks over.
  5. Join the first two pairs together with a piece of tape in the middle.
  6. Do the same with the other two pairs.
  7. Then lastly join both pieces together in the middle.

Below is a video of the process.

Just test to see if you’ve done it correctly by folding it up into a fan (it should fold easily).

Now comes the fun part. Decorate! However you like (on both sides). Just remember to leave a section at the top to write a message before you start decorating.

Card

My favourite way to use this paddle pop stick foldable craft is to make a card. Great for Father’s Day, Mother’s Day, birthday card, for Christmas or children to give to friends.

My daughter did a 7 Things I Love About Dad card. I particularly love number 4: When I find things hard, you’re my friend.
