SAF Accessories - popsicle stick bangle

I meant all long to go back to the challenge, having left a few popsicle sticks drying over the weekend, but I didn't realise how hard it would be!
I have high hopes for this craft for the middle school craft club, but we will definitely be sticking paper to them, and not trying to emboss them as I had a truly miserable experience trying to get this to work.
Anyway, here's the finished (!) product.
The sentiment is from the "pretty petals" set.
