I have to tell you, I was SO EXCITED to try out this idea I had that I could hardly wait for all of my supplies to show up!  I thought it would be super cool if I could use my stamps and some (important) non-toxic ink to stamp Joy’s Life sentiments on popsicle sticks.  So, I went to Amazon and bought the Norpro Ice Pop Maker and some extra popsicle sticks.

Create these fun pop sticks with Joy’s Life stamps.

Yep, Jello is the yummy secret to these pops. That’s just a scratch on the bowl, not a crack.  LOL!

I’ve always made my kiddos popsicles using OJ and other juices.  Where have I been?  I found popsicle recipes calling for Jello and Kool Aid.  Sounded yummy but all I had on hand was sugar free Jello, so I used that.  It turned out GREAT!

If a little is good, a lot is better, right? No. Try NOT to overfill.

Here’s the Popsicle Recipe:

Jello Popsicle Recipe

Print Recipe Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Pin Recipe


  • Popsicle Mold/Maker


  • 1 small box Jello any flavor
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 cups boiling water
  • 2 cups cold water


  • Put the Jello and sugar in a bowl.
    Add boiling water and stir to dissolve.
    Add the cold water and stir.
    Pour into popsicle mold/maker (or Dixie cup with toothpick holder).
    MY TIP: If you buy the popsicle maker that I used, freeze for 2 hours before adding the sticks. Add sticks and freeze for at least 2 more hours for the best outcome.


I used sugar free Jello because it’s what I had.

This is one of my favorite projects EVER.

Using non-toxic ink, I stamped all of my popsicle sticks.  For my first try, I stamped them all 24 hours in advance.  By batch 3, I stamped them 10 minutes before I stuck them in the popsicle mold.  LOL!  Both ways turned out well!  I was super impressed.

All sayings shown are from Pun in the Sun and Sweet Popsicle Puns Joy’s Life stamps.

Wax paper rules my Popsicle World.

I wasn’t sure what to do with my plethora of popsicles, so I decided to separate them with wax paper and sort of stand them in a freezer safe bowl.  Even after several days, they were still fine.  YAY!

I used strawberry, orange and lime Jello. Orange was my favorite.

What a cool idea…you could theme them for different occasions with your stamps! I’ve made kool aid popsicles, but never heard of jello ones. You know you can make them with pudding too…chocolate popsicles!

I hope you enjoyed this BITE of summer fun!  Check out these cool blogs for even more fun!

Joy – You Are Here
