Lollipop Covers A Tutorial - Create with Connie & Mary Color Challenge 167

Halloween is coming soon, and I'm getting the 'goodies' ready for the "trick and treaters".  One of my projects is to make decorative lollipops - actually I'm selling some - have already sold some.

Stamps: Batty for You
Inks: Cajun Craze
Papers: Basic Gray, Cajun Craze, Old Olive, Whisper white, Frightful Sight Designer Series Paper
Accessories: 1 1/4", 1 3/8", Scallop circle punches, 1/4" Old Olive Ribbon, Lollipops (non SU), Sticky Strip, 1 1/16" Hand Held Punch, Glue dots, dimensionals

Making the Cover:

1.  Cut card stock  2 1/2 by 5 1/2" for each lolllipop
2.  Score at 2 1/2 and 5"
3.  Punch hole with hand held punch just below score line in the middle (for the lollipop stick)

4.  Apply a piece of sticky strip just above the punched hole.  Apply a glue dot on both sides on the score line.
Make Decorative Cover:

1.  Cut Cajun Craze card stock 2 by 2" and designer paper at 1 7/8 by 1 7/8"
2.  Attach with snail adhesive
3.  Attach to the Lollipop base on the front (just above the punched hole)

4. Stamp image using Cajun Craze ink.  Punch using 1 1/4" circle punch.
5.  Punch a 1 3/8" Basic Gray circle
6.  Punch a scallop circle in Old Olive
7.  Use stampin dimensionals to attach image to basic gray circle
8.  Attach this to Old Olive Scallop circle
9.  Adhere this to the middle of the designer paper on the front.

Add Lollipop

1.  Remove red liner from sticky strip
2.  Fold up bottom flap
3.  Insert lollipop stick through punched hole.  Ensure lollipop sticks to sticky strip.

3.  Fold other half of base down and insert under this folded flap (like a match book)

4.  The back of the cover curves over the lollipop.  See sideview below.

5.  Attach knotted ribbon to front using a glue dot.

Your decorative lollipop is complete
