This is a make-n-take for an upcoming mom & daughter workshop. The kids are ages 6-9 so I wanted to keep it simple. They're all girls so I thought the bright colors would be fun :-) I forgot to add that this was originally a make-n-take at my upline's meeting (it used a flower set for the stamped front layer, our patterned paper for the back layered part and flower eyelets instead of brads).

The dimensions are pretty easy: Take a 12x12 cardstock and cut it into 3 strips. Our paper is just shy of 12 inches so I think I cut it to 12 x 2.75. Then just fold up the bottom part (about 3 or 4 inches?) to make the little pocket for the sticks. Stamp and layer and attach with brads (eyelets would be cute too but I didn't want hammers in the hands of 6 yr olds :-) and insert your pixie stix.
