Musical Season Lollipop Holders Video

Hello Crafters.

Now that we're just days away from the new catalogue going live, I've started plaing with our new Christmas products!

I'm sure the Musicai Season Stamp Set and co-ordinating Musical Intruments Framelits Bundle is going to be a real winner! 

The inspiration for these lollipop holders came from a swap I received when I was on the recent Incentive Trip to Thailand.

 I had to make my holder a bit bigger than the swap I received from Sandy Carlson, because my lollipop was bigger, although not as suitable as a Christmas lollipop as Sandy's was!

Unfortunately the only one that came any where near close to ideal for my project was a My Little Pony chocolate lollipop in a heart shape. 

Needless to say they sit in the holder upside down!  LOL!

But no worries, it's chocolate and it won't last for long with me around!

One of the beauties of this project is that it's so very easy to adjust the measurements to fit any size lollipop. 

Just measure the width and cut your card stock to size, leaving the overall length of cardstock the same and all the score lines as shown! 

Obviously you'd need to adjust the measurements of the Whisper White and Designer Series Paper (DSP) pieces, if you plan to have the layers.

Other alternatives is to use plain cardstock, or cardstock you've stamped or heat embossed with it's own design.
When I was cutting the Music DSP, I made sure I marked an up arrow on the back of the pieces that didn't have the words of the song written on them! 
I'm not a musical person, I can't read music, I can't sing except out of tune, and I was determined not to put the music upside down! 

All went well until I adhered one piece back to front! 

At least it was up the right way. 

I felt such a dummy and have left that in the video! 

I hope you join me while I have my giggle! LOL!  

That's about it for today. Until tomorrow, happy crafting.



  1. Jan,
    Where are your measurements? I have looked all over on this blog, but I can't find them. I loved this project.

    1. Hi, Marilyn. I always put the measurements in the box below the video. If you click on SHOW MORE after the short description about the video, it opens up with all the measurements, contact details, etc. Please see below, I've done a copy and paste for you for this video. ☺ Happy crafting, JanB.
