o   Step 2: Choose a couple of bright, cool paints to work with and start painting! Apply paint to the Gelli Arts® plate. Make marks with the DIY foam stamps and stamp the excess paint on the stamps off onto a spare sheet of paper or onto another print.

o   Step 3: You will need two prints of each design. Cut each pair of prints out and into a popsicle shape. Add more color and detail to the prints with colored pencils.

o   Step 5: Adhere a craft stick onto the back of the popsicle. Then apply glue to the other popsicle side and paste the two sides together.
