1. Tie a knot in your string about 5 cm from one end. Take the end without the knot and thread three or four beads onto the string. The beads will stop at the knot.

2.  Apply plenty of glue to two small lollipop sticks – only put glue on one side of each stick. Just above the beads sandwich the string between the two small lollipop sticks and press them firmly together. Hold the sticks together until the glue begins to dry, then clamp the sticks together with two clothes pegs.

3. Thread three or four more beads onto the string. The beads will stop at the lollipop sticks.

4. Apply plenty of glue to two large lollipop sticks – only put glue on one side of each stick. Just above the second set of beads sandwich the string between the two small lollipop sticks and press them firmly together. Hold the sticks together until  the glue begins to dry, then clamp the sticks together with two clothes pegs. 

5. Thread three or four more beads onto the string. The beads will stop at the lollipop sticks. 

6. While the glue is drying colour in and cut out your textboxes.

7. If the glue still has not dried wrap two pieces of sticky tape around the lollipop sticks as shown in the picture. 

8. Carefully stick the textboxes to the lollipop sticks. If you have time colour in a second set of textboxes and stick them to the other side of the lollipop sticks. Tie a  knot in the top of your string so that you can hang up your mobile.
