10 Days Of Halloween Project Day #3!


Welcome to Day #3 of my 10 Days Of Halloween Projects! Today is all about goodies for my granddaughter Kaitlynn's 4th grade class. I always make treats like this for some of our holidays for Kaitlynn's class. The idea for this adorable Lollipop Holder came to me from Sandy Carlson while we attended the Stampin' Up! Thailand Incentive trip. Sandy had an inspiration booth set up with some really cute projects. I'll show you hers at the end of my post. Warning: lots of photo's so you can see all angles of my project!


So I made 12 of these for Kaitlynn's classmates and added another 12 for a business where I sell my cards and other projects. I had 24 lollipops that I ordered through Oriental Trading so I used them all. You can see with this group photo that I used different patterns from the Spooky Night Designer Paper:



I have all of the individual paper patterns I used in the photo below. Which one do you like the best? I happen to like them all. The best part to me is the Cat Punch that I used for all of my kitty cats!



How about if I show you close-up photos?


Notice also that I used Mini Gift Bows at the top of each flap


And under each flap is a Velcro dot cut in half to keep the flaps closed.


I used the retired Word Window Punch for the sentiment and it could very easily be substituted with the Classic Label Punch.



These are the lollipops I used. I punched a small hole at the top to put the stick through. The Velcro dot is cut in half to add two pieces. 



See how the whole thing looks like when opened?


And finally, the side view:


The last photo is Sandy's project that she created for a Christmas Lollipop Holder. See why I fell in love with it? I love that you can decorate these any way you want and that they are so easy to mass-produce:




Here are the measurements:

  • Basic Black Cardstock 9" x 2". Score at 3-5/8", 4-3/8", 8-1/8" and 8-1/4". 
  • Punch a hole between the 8-1/8" and 8-1/4" score lines with a 1/4" handheld punch. This is for the lollipop stick.
  • Cut a Velcro dot in half and press both pieces in place under the top flap.
  • Glue a Mini Bow to the top flap on the front.  
  • Add a piece of Spooky Night Designer Paper measuring 1-3/4" x 3-3/8" to the front.
  • Add a half-circle to the front right of the treat holder that is cut with the 2-1/4" Circle Punch using Very Vanilla Cardstock. Cut in half.
  • Using the Cat Punch and Basic Black Cardstock, cut 1 cat and glue to the circle using Stampin' Dimensionals.
  • Stamp the sentiment from the Teeny Tiny Wishes Stamp set on Pumpkin Pie Cardstock. Cut using the retired Word Window Punch or the Classic Label Punch. Glue using Stampin' Dimensionals. 
  • Add the lollipop stick through the hole and fold on score lines and press the velcro in place to secure.
And finally, here is the link to Oriental Trading for the lollipops I used:

  2. That lolly looks yummy! I need to make treat bags for my housekeeper's kids so all ideas are appreciated. As soon as I saw there is to be 10 days of Halloween projects I thought it is time to pull up a comfy chair. Then I see this is Day 3 and I want to know where I was for Day 2 and 1?
