Saturday Morning Videos: Lollipop Cover

Good morning and welcome to Saturday Morning Cartoons Videos!  Today I have for you a quick demonstration of how to make this darling candy cover. These would make fantastic party favors or little treats to give away! You can customize them with any color or stamp set so they could fit any theme or occasion and they are really quick and simple to make!

Start by cutting the larger frame shape from the Apothecary Accents Framelit dies and don't forget to use the Magnetic Platform to hold the framelit in place and make it super easy to use! You will need two of the labels. 

You will also need to cut an extra shape out using a plain scrap paper , this is to use as a pattern and will help make sure you get your score and cut lines straight. Fold it in half and then you have a straight line to work with. 

Use the Simply Scored Scoring Tool to score. Measure your candy to determine how long to cut your label. For this project you will need it to be 3-1/4" long, so we have the marker set there, then score. Then, come over another ¼ inch and score again. This second score line is actually your cut line. Use your Stampin' Trimmer or Paper Snips to trim off this edge. Do this with both labels, over lap and adhere with Sticky Strip.

Use any household paper punch to punch holes in the bottom, and thread ribbon through and tie your candy inside. We used orange 1/8" Taffeta Ribbon it's the perfect size for this! Embellish this any way you'd like. We used the Bug Me stamp set and the Remembering Your Birthday set for the greeting. 

Take a look at the instructions in action!
