Krafty Tips and Tutorial - Lollipop Holders!


Hi there!  It's Krafty Girl Marilyn and today I've got a quick and easy tutorial for you!  I'm going to show you how to make these adorable Lollipop Holders without having to buy or use a die!!  I'm featuring the stamp set Dino-Mite Pals.  So let's get started!


You'll need a piece of cardstock or designer paper cut to 6 inches by 2 inches.  Your embellishments of choice, ribbon, a hole punch and of course a lollipop!!


Next, score along the long side at 1 3/4 inches, 2 3/4 inches and 5 inches.  Fold at the scores lines.  It should look like the picture below.


With your hole punch and at the 5 inch score line make a pencil mark in the middle (1 inch).  Keep paper folded and make a hole. Then make a mark about 1/4 inch from score line on either side of previous hole and about 1/2 inch apart.  It should look like this.


Notice the larger hole is centered on the score line.  This is where the lollipop stick will go through.  The smaller holes are for the ribbon.  Once folded and the ribbon added, it will help keep the lollipop in place.
That's all you have to do for the lollipop holder.  Now it's time to decorate and have fun with it!


Make sure your lollipop is inside before you decorate!  Here's a finished one and a side view of the holder and lollipop.



Super simple to do, and only takes about five minutes from start to finish!  I hope you give these a try and if you do, don't forget to share on the Krafty Friends Facebook page!  These would also be great using the Darling Dragons stamps and Unicorn and Rainbows stamps.

Thanks for taking a look and have a great week!
