Halloween Lollipop Holders

Good evening fellow crafters! I hope that you all have had a fantastic weekend! My dad came into town last night from San Antonio, so he was here tonight with his girlfriend. The girls and their cousins got to spend a few hours with them, they already head back home tomorrow :( We don't see my dad very often, so I was surprised at how upset my youngest one was when he left, she was crying. We have not yet had the chance to visit him in San Antonio, but I hope we get that chance soon!

Today I am sharing with you another Halloween favor set I put together. When I saw this stamp and Die-namics set from My Favorite Things, I just knew I had to have it. Whoever came up with this idea is brilliant, it is so perfect for putting together lollipop holders! I love it because I didn't have to use ANY ADHESIVE! Not one bit! It was awesome! They came together very quickly. I used a full-size Charms Blow Pop inside each one.

I used regular white cardstock for the bases. I also used Basic Black, Pumpkin Pie, Elegant Eggplant, and Old Olive cardstock and inkpads from Stampin' Up. I used black crochet thread from Red Heart to tie them together. I stamped the back of each one with sayings from the same stamp set.

This was my very first My Favorite Things purchase, and I seriously love it. Cannot wait to use it for Christmas on candy canes! I'm also thinking for the kids at school too, maybe some pencils or even with the Skittles candy sticks?! Ahhh so many ideas running through my mind! I definitely recommend you buy the set together, it only cost $39.95. If you purchase them separately, it would cost $49.90.

Thanks for stopping by, have a great week!
