Scrow Pops

Had seen the Scarecrow Cards made and here is a photo of some of the ones I had made using the SU Top Note die. Then I saw these little guys made using the SU Curly Label punch:

Too cute and would be great on tags and such --- here is a photo to show the difference in sizes of these guys:

So decided to use the little guys for a tag and two Tootsie Pop holders. Here is the tag first and I used the SU Two Tags die to cut out the green tag from SU card stock. The scarecrows for these little guys were made using Kraft card stock from Mikes and I used the SU Square Lattice embossing folder to emboss them. Sponged the edges and put them together. For the tag I tied on a ribbon and then a piece of hairy yarn around that:

These tags would be good for a candy bag or such. This smaller scarecrow is a good size for smaller items than a card. Here are my two "Scrow Pops" as I call them:

Will start with the holder on the left -- Used white speckled card stock and cut the piece 2 1/4" wide by 8" long. Scored this at 3 1/2" and 4 1/2". Before folding and creasing the score lines I put this piece in the TH embossing folder Textured Leaves. I only put the holder front into the folder and embossed it. The bottom and back of the holder are not embossed. Once embossed I used a corner rounder punch and rounded the top corners of the holder. Using SU Sahara Sand ink I sponged over the leaves and then the sides of the embossed piece. Using the bone folder I creased my scored lines and folded my holder into shape. Using a pencil I made two marks near the top of the holder and then used a small circle punch for the two holes. Put the Tootsie Pop in the holder using a glue dot to hold it in place. Used a small stamp for "Give Thanks" and stamped that onto scrap speckled white card stock. Cut that oval tag out using the Spellbinders Back to Basics Tag set--sponged the edges and then used SU twine and tied the holder shut. Put a clear glue dot behind the oval greeting to keep it in place.

For the small scarecrows -- using the Curly Label punch I punched out a piece from kraft card stock. Then punched out a second label from printed double sided card stock. Drew the mouth on the kraft piece with a black marker and then embossed this in the SU Square Lattice embossing folder. Sponged the edges of this piece. Added wiggle eyes and made a triangle nose. Sponged the edges of the hat and used the SU Trio Flower punch for the flower for the hat and added a crystal. Hair is brown paper shred from the dollar store. Put the scarecrow onto the holder using pop dots. Here is a closer photo of the embossed/sponged holder front:

Now to the second holder:

This holder is made using cream speckled card stock from SU. Made the holder as the other using a piece 2 1/4" x 8". I used the same embossing folder as the other holder but for this holder I used that embossing folder as the background image. I inked the raised side of the embossing folder using brown ink and put the front of my holder only into the inked folder. Closed the folder and ran over it with a brayer. This transfers the inked design onto my piece. Once that was done I rinsed off the embossing folder with water and set it aside to dry. I sponged the edges of the inked front of my holder using the brown ink and then used the bone folder to crease my scored lines. Put the Tootsie Pop in the holder with a glue dot and again made small holes to close the holder with twine. The twine for this holder is the $1.00 twine from AC Moore. Here is a closer photo of the inked background on the holder front:

Used brown ink to stamp the "Thanksgiving Blessings" stamp and used a die from the Sizzix Banners #2 die and stamp set. Put the banner/greeting piece on the holder using a glue dot. Put the scarecrow on the holder using pop dots. Did not round the corners at the top of this holder. But clearly you get two different looks from the same embossing folder:

Tootsie Pop holders are free standing and cute table markers or favors. Easy to do and the smaller scarecrow is a perfect size for the holder fronts. TFL and YOLO
