I am excited to be back again this month sharing a simple party craft that you can easily make for your next event.
Lollipops are a childhood favorite and they make fantastic party favors or classroom treats! With Easter just around the corner I want to show you how you can transform store bought lollipops into sweet treats and custom favors the children will love.
All you need are a few inexpensive supplies and less than an hour to put together this fun project.
- Lollipops, the flat variety work best.
- Paper: Solid textured paper for the base and coordinating patterned paper for the circles
- Accessories: ribbon, paper trimmer with scoring blade, 2” circle punch and scallop punch, adhesive (I used 3D pop dots)
Step 1: Take your solid textured paper and cut 2 ¼”x 6″ strips, score at 7/8″, 2 ¼”, 3 ½” and 3 7/8”.
Crease along score lines.
Step 2: Using a small hole punch or an eyelet setter tool punch a hole in the middle of your first set of score lines.
Step 3: Take your coordinating patterned paper and make circles using your 2” circle punch. I used patterned paper from the Dimpleprints Easter Collection. Then use your coordinating paper and cut 2” scallops with your scallop punch. Glue your patterned circles to the scallops.
Step 4: Embellish your circles with coordinating stickers or printables. I wanted mine to reflect the rest of the details for our Easter Egg Hunt party, so I took the cute little chick, bunny and lamb that were in the party package and cut them out. Attach them to the middle circle using 3D pop dots.
Step 5: Put your lollipop through the hole and fold the ends over and secure. Add your scallop to the center and tie a ribbon to the stick.
Now you have a cute party favor that will put sweet smiles on all your little party guest!
