Welcome to the Sticky Sticks and Designer Craft Connection Blog Hop!! This hop continues through October 22nd so keep an eye out for this logo to move forwards and backwards through the blogs in the hop:

Okay, how fun are Sticky Sticks? Last year when I had a craft fair booth and it was super hot I was looking for a way to make fans for my business – customers could use them to fan themselves and keep while the image I would use was for Hydrangea Hippo! I looked at pricing and it was either super expensive, I had to order out of state, the quantities I needed to order were ridiculous – really, 2000 pieces?! I wish I had known about Sticky Sticks then!

Since I don't have a craft fair booth right now, I tried to think of ways I could use Sticky Sicks around the house. I love a good practical solution in the form of crafty goodies and Sticky Sticks seemed like one of those kinds of craft products. Here's what I made:

These can be used as plant stakes – to dress up a potted plant as a gift or to label herbs like I did here. Then I took the “fan” and the little decorative stick pick and added them to an urn filled with buttons to show how cute these would be as place settings or centerpieces for a party!

And here's how I made them:

These can be used as plant stakes, for place settings at a dinner party, as fans for an outdoor get-together, or  inserted into a gift bag for a pretty, festive topper. What would you create with Sticky Sticks?
