Sweet Easter Lollipop Covers Tutorial

Another great tutorial from Mariah at Giggles Galore…We recently had an Easter Egg Hunt party and I needed a favor that was simple.  The kids were going to be taking home lots of goodies from the Easter eggs so I didn’t want anything to over the top or complicated.  Of course I had to send them home with something that tied in with our party theme, so I created these sweet lollipop covers.

Using a few simple supplies you can easily create a custom lollipop for your next event.

Supplies:

  • Lollipops, the flat variety work best.
  • Paper: Solid textured paper for the base and coordinating patterned paper for the circles
  • Accessories:  ribbon, paper trimmer with scoring blade, 2” circle punch and scallop punch, adhesive (I used 3D pop dots)

Step-by-Step Tutorial

Step 1: Take your solid textured paper and cut 2 ¼”x 6″ strips, score at 7/8″, 2 ¼”, 3 ½” and 3 7/8”.  Crease along score lines.

Step 2: Using a small hole punch or an eyelet setter tool punch a hole in the middle of your first set of score lines.

Step 3:  Take your coordinating patterned paper (I used the sweet cupcake toppers and the cupcake topper backs from Dimpleprints Easter package to make mine) and make circles using your 2” circle punch.

Step 4: Gather coordinating paper and cut 2” scallops with your scallop punch or a personal cutting machine.  (I used my Cricut and the scallop flower on the Storybook cartridge.)  Glue your patterned circles to the scallops.

Step 5: If you want embellish your circles.  I thought my patterned circles were a little plain.  I wanted them to reflect the rest of the details from the party, so I took the cute little chick, bunny and lamb that were on the banner circles and shrunk them down to fit in the smaller circles.  I cut each one out and used 3D pop dots to attach them.

Step 6: Put your lollipop through the hole and fold the ends over and secure.

Step 7: Add your scallop to the center and tie a ribbon to the stick.

Now you have a cute party favor that will please any kid!

    I am trying to make this and I think your measurments are off a bit. I scored my paper at those intervals and it looks nothing like yours. Am I doing something wrong.
    Please help. I need these for our Easter party next week.

    • Hi Brenda, shoot on over to Giggles Galore and chat with Mariah. She did this tutorial as a guest post for us, so unfortunately I’m not a huge help. Wish I could be of more assistance.

        I think the stated 2 1/4 measurement meant to read 1 1/4 ? I tried that with mine (while keeping the other measurements the same) and it seemed to turn out okay.
        Thanks so much for posting this tutorial, they are darling!:)
