Super easy DIY for grouping or partnering.
First you need: Craft sticks, washi tape, and mod podge (or clear packing tape)
First choose your washi tape; use either a variety of washi tape or you can find washi tape that has a variety of designs on one roll. Then apply to craft stick on one end of the craft stick. I used jumbo craft sticks and had some overhang from some washi tape you can easily (but very carefully) use an exacto-knife to get a clean cut. Finally apply a decent amount of mod podge to the area that has the washi tape or cover with clear tape. I'm not sure, but you may be able to laminate them; I'm not 100% on how well craft sticks laminate.
Please forgive the photos. Why they are all sorts of upside down and sideways is beyond me :)
