What is a frame bomb? A frame bomb is a Popsicle stick bomb, grenade, flyer, or weave; call them what you will. They are craft stick structures temporarily held together by the tension from other sticks in the same weave. No glue or adhesive is used, only sticks and elastic energy.

So it's much more fun than other craft stick structures you've seen in the past!
