Give small-scale art a fitting gallery treatment with this craft-stick easel.
Paint the 4 craft sticks and let them dry.
Glue a card stock triangle hinge (A) to three of the sticks, leaving a space between the front two sticks and the back stick, as shown (B).
Glue the fourth stick across the front to create a shelf (C) and use a pencil to prop it in place while the glue dries.
Finally, bend the easel at the hinge and attach one end of a 2-inch paper strip to the shelf and the other end to the back stick for added stability.
