Lollipop Holder - File Available!

I have heard about some dies that are available that are for lollipop holders and I thought that was a cute idea. My problem though...well why would I get a die and have to do one at a time when I have machines that cut paper and I could cut a whole passel of holders just with a push of a button!

Maybe it was a little more work than pushing a button since I did have to make the file. It's amazing what a trapezoid, circle and rectangle can make! I did a little extra work and made a mat for the holders and I also made a few different "buttons" and even one tag.

Oh and notice the nice "texture" layer I did on the file! I played around with Make The Cut the other night and figured out how to do that and it makes it nice so you can see more of how things will look when patterned paper is used.




Here is the front few of the lollipop holder. I used Stampin Up cardstock for the base since it is a good heavy cardstock but I think any good cardstock would work good. The pattern paper is some scraps of a Basic Grey Lemonade pad I had and when I say scraps I do mean scraps! So if ya do have some scraps laying around this might be a great project to use them on instead of just tossing them in the trash.






I threaded the ribbon through the holes and just tied a bow on the front to keep the lollipop in place.


I think these would be great for favors for class parties, showers, or even just a little "thank you" or "thinking of you" treat. I wanted to really come up with some clever sayings and get some fantastic things done with these to post but I was too excited to share the file to take my time and come up with something cute!

The file includes the pieces that are in the first picture.

    These will be cute for school parties.
    I can see some for Halloween or Christmas will be so cute. I will have 3 grandbabies in school this year. I don't do as much for them though as I did with my first one.
