I have a quick and fun Valentine's Day treat idea for you. Recently I've seen a lot of wrappers/holders for lollipops and cake pops all over the place and with Valentine's Day quickly approaching I thought it would be fun to create one for my nephew's class. So, I started searching the Silhouette online store...I didn't find a wrapper specific for my lollipops, but I did find a shape I could work with.
Below is a picture of the shape right after I took it off the mat. I did all my sizing or re-sizing as it were, before I cut. The score lines are made by the Silhouette.
All I did to get the desired wrapper was cut off the portion at the top. About an inch below the top note edge is a score line, which made it easy for me to see where I needed to trim. My measurements were all based on the length and width below this score mark.
Next up I used the bottom of the wrapper as a stencil to round my corners. ***Please ignore my nails which are in desperate need of a manicure, lol.
I placed a small glue dot in the center of my wrapper.
The glue dot helps hold the lollipop in place until the wrapper is all tied up.
Next I punched a hole on either side of the lollipop stick to insert my twine, and hold the lollipop in place.
To finish I added some robot images I colored with my Copics.
Now, in case you aren't a "colorer" (yeah it's not a real word, but I'm going to use it anyway) or want an option that's quicker, here's another idea. This robot is from the Silhouette store and if you fill up your mat you can cut a bunch a one time, which is always a great idea when you have a large quantity of anything to make.
