Straw Tootsie Pop Holders

Had made these Flap Over Tootsie Pop treat holders before but for this holder I changed the pattern. I also did not want to see the white stick for the Tootsie Pop so I bought some Halloween patterned straws from the dollar store. Here is a photo of the black holder first:

For the holder I used a piece of 2" wide black card stock from Mikes. Cut that to 8" so that piece is 2" x 8". Scored it with the long side at the top of the score board at 3", 4", and again at 7". Used the bone folder to crease all scored lines. For the print on the front panel I cut that 2 3/4" long by 1 3/4" wide and put that on the front panel using the ATG. For the dotted piece I cut that 3/4" high by 1 3/4" wide and put that onto the front flap.

Used a 1/4" circle punch and punched the hole at the top for the stick to fit through. Used a small double punch for the ribbon holes and put my ribbon through those holes and tied the holder shut. Cut the straw approx 2 1/2" long using scissors and slipped that over the Tootsie Pop stick -- now it looks more like a Halloween treat. (Just slid the straw over the stick -- no adhesive was used).

Stampin Up Mixed Medley is the stamp set the greeting is from. Used various circle punches for that and a scalloped circle punch for the orange scallop piece. Put the greeting on the front of the holder using a large glue dot. Easy holder to put together and it is free standing as well. TFL and YOLO
