Bendaroos are versatile enough to use in a thousand ways, so let your imagination run wild. These sticks are made of a wax coating over very strong string. They are similar to Wikki Stix, which are wax over yarn. To my eye, the tow brands look the same, bend the same, and feel the same. Bendaroos adhere to paper and most smooth surfaces with just fingertip pressure. Once you are done with your project, they peel right off to be reused over and over. Each 2D pattern card shows in 5 steps how to create an animal. The key at the bottom of each card shows you the number and color of whole Bendaroos you will need, and number and color of 1/2 Bendaroos. They are easy to cut in half with scissors.
