Using Cricut to Cut

  • Upload Popsicle SVG File into Design Space and Click Ungroup
  • Select “Make It” in Design Space.
  • Place a sheet of decorative paper on the light grip mat.
  • Follow prompts for loading the mat into the Cricut Maker and cutting the paper.
  • Repeat for each different paper color until all pieces are cut.
  • Each popsicle has two sides. Place all the pieces for each individual popsicle together on a flat surface to assemble.
  • Using a glue stick, apply glue to the back side of the smaller decorative cut pieces and press them on to the larger cut popsicle pieces. Repeat for all popsicles.
  • Preheat the hot glue gun. Cut a piece of twine 60” long.
  • Working one popsicle at a time, place both sides of the popsicle face down.
  • Add hot glue to the upper half of one side of a wooden popsicle stick and press it down on to the wrong side of the paper popsicle.
  • Add a bead of glue at the top of the stick and carefully press the twine into the glue across the width of the paper popsicle leaving about 15” of twine on the starting end.
  • Apply glue to the other side of the popsicle and press it on top with the wrong sides together, sandwiching the glued twine inside.
  • Continue with the remaining popsicles keeping a 4” spacing between each paper popsicle until all popsicles are attached.

Using Scissors to Cut

  • Place the printed pattern pieces over the decorative papper and cut along the solid lines using a pair of paper scissors.
  • When finished, hang to enjoy!
