Need a great lollypop holder for Halloween treats? Make this colorful and ornate card! It adds a special flair to trick or treat and is easy to make. They work great for class parties, scout parties or trick or treat. There are Valentin’s treat cards here.
The treat cards are easy to make lots of and suitable for the kids to help too! They don’t really fit in an envelope for mailing, but would look great in a treat bag!
Paper Selection for the Halloween Treats Holder
The colors of this card are traditional Halloween colors. The base needs to be somewhat heavy (at least 65 lb. wt.) but because of the layers it holds up well. Patterns work well for any of the overlays but the embellishments are too small for a pattern to work well.
Cutting the Halloween Treats Holders
The lettering is all cut out so there is no drawing. But this makes all the embellishments EXTREMELY this and difficult to remove from the mat without tearing. Be careful!
Assembling the Halloween Treats Holders
This is really simple to assemble! Follow the pictures to see what order it is layered. (Take more care than I did for lining up the layers. It was late and I was tired.) Make sure the lollypop cutouts line up properly for the overlays Also make sure nothing covers the holes for the lollypops. Other than that it is pretty straight forward.
And your Halloween Treat Holders are done! I told you it was easy!
Lollipop Fun Facts
- Lollipops have been around for a very long time. Ancient African and Asian societies created fruit and nut treats that they candied in honey, which acted as a natural preservative. They inserted a stick into the treats to make them easier to eat.
- The lollipops we know and love today began to emerge in the 17th century. As sugar became more widely affordable and available, Europeans enjoyed creating boiled sugar confections and they also inserted sticks to keep the treats from getting their hands sticky.
- In 1908, the first lollipop machine was created. It automated the process of placing hard candy on sticks – the machine could create more than 2,000 lollipops every hour!
- The Dum Dum Pop’s mystery flavor isn’t such a mystery. It is created when a batch of one flavor is running out and they begin a new one in the same vat, so you never know which two flavors will be combined!
- In 2012, the world’s largest lollipop was created in California. A candy manufacturer made a chocolate-flavored lollipop that stood over 5 feet tall and weighed more than seven thousand pounds!
- The label for Chupa Chup lollipops was designed and illustrated by the famed surrealist artist Salvador Dali.
- Tootsie Roll is the largest manufacturer of lollipops: they produce over 16 million sweet suckers every single day!
- Dum Dum lollipops were given their name because the inventor felt it would be an easy name for children to pronounce and remember.
