Well, it’s me again, Susan Liles (susiestampalot), and I’m here to serve ya’ll up some fun with my monthly installment of my SUSIE-Q FUN TIP! Makes sense, right?
Ya’ll know I LOVE to get lots of mileage out of my dies. So when Your Next Stamp came out with these YNS Lollipop Cover dies last month, I TOTALLY knew these had to be transformed somehow into OWLS! WhoooOooOO wants to see how I did it?
There’s no stamping involved in these, so all I had to do was gather my YNS dies:
YNS Lollipop Cover
YNS Insta Love Polaroid Die Set (inside oval only)
YNS Whatnots Season One Die Set (Heart, Sun, Loopy Circle Chain)
plus a regular hole punch (1/4″ or so).
**I found Tootsie Roll Pops fit perfectly in the Lollipop Covers.
Go ahead and cut all the pieces at once with the dies as shown above. Don’t forget to cut 2 hearts for each set of wings. Since the loopy circles make 3 sets of eyes, you may want to go ahead and cut three sets of everything else and have enough for 3 complete owl pops. Just sayin’.
Here’s where you and your little “X” Xyron maker become best friends…
If you don’t have one of these, I highly recommend it. Turns stuff into stickers. Magic. Use a coupon at Mike’s or HL and it’ll only be like $7 bucks.
Then fold along score lines. Insert the lollipop, stick first, into the large hole. You may have to scrunch the wrapper down on the stick so that it fits right. Glue the face to the body with the lollipop inside. You can use Scor-tape. I’m not sure if it’d stick well enough, but you could try a temporary adhesive here, so that it can still open.
