Lollipop~Sucker Holder

Every time we go to the bank my kids get lollipops, so I loved this wonderful idea I saw on The Frugal Crafter for lollipops [flat ones]. Time to give away all those lollipops that the kids have not eaten and have it in a cool pouch. This is a great idea for party favors or trick or treat [if you have a small neighborhood]. Easy peasy to make and the kids will love making and receiving them.

I did not have the machine that The Frugal Crafter had, so I designed my own template. This template is designed as a square card originally that you decorate on the square and then fold in the sides, but with a bit of a modification you will have a lollipop treat holder. I did 2 styles, a 2" and a 3". So the inside square measures either 2" or 3". The 2" template I was able to fit 4 on a page. 3" template will only fit one.

2" Template

3" Template
Print out the template and cut around the outside solid line.

Score 3 sides only and fold up and glue. It was easier for me to have the bottom fold on the outside, but you can have the bottom tucked in too.

Decorate with your favorite embellishments. I cut out a 2" x 2" square of a coordinating color and glued it on the front of the 2" size. Cut a 3" x 3" square for the front of the 3" size. I used the fish from our Bigfoot & Pickle Face Creations clear rubber stamp collection and stamped the image with our child safe/washable ink stamp pad. I colored and then cut the image out and adhere it to the card with some foam tape to give it a raised look. I decorated around the pouch with some colored pencils.

Use your imagination when it comes to decorating and definitely include your kids, as they will think this is a great way to dress up a lollipop. Never stop having fun, so continue to stamp your life away! Thanks for visiting us and stop at our store if you would like to purchase our products, they are made in the U.S.A.
