Lollipop Holders

I thought these would be cute to post.  Lollipop Holders.  The die is from www.creativetimeforme.com
Emma makes beautiful stamps and Die Cuts.  Fun for projects.

Challenge Me Monday #91

For my tags I used Emma's Stamp set Keeping it Classy.  The paper is Authentique, Journey.  One is a Tag and the other is a craft holder.  I just attach the tag to a TP roll and add the wood base for the stand.  I made these holders for the girls in the Beauty Shop.  Matched the colors of the shop, and they look so cute on their tables which they keep their pens in.

My Creative Time Design Team Call


Thanks Emma for opportunity.  I usually start and end my day on your blog.  You always have so much excitement in what ever you do and I enjoy you so much.  I would love to join you and your team who are also amazing and always fun projects to see.
I have been collecting your beautiful stamps along with Peach Keen stamps.  Two of my favorite collections.
I was just invited to do a Guest spot for You Had Me At Craft and for my project I did my craft holders.  They are so cute that I thought I would do one for this DT call.  I use the Toilet Paper Roll as my base and then decorate it.  The bottoms which holds the roll is made by my husband.

I used Simply Charmed for the Chimney cut on my Gypsy at 2x5.47
I used Winter Frolic for Santa cut at 3"
Stamp is from your collection Gift Card Sentiments
Die is your Stitched Oval Die
In this shot you can see the TP holder in the back

Again thanks and I hope you enjoy my project.  You can see others on my blog below with a video putting the holder together.

GUEST DESIGNER LALA PALOOZA with Barbara

Hello and Welcome
I am Barbara from Craft Me This 
 Today I am the Guest Designer for
Alex, You Had Me At Craft.  This is my very first time for me being a Guest Designer.

When the call went out, it was about 6AM and I was on my Lap Top in bed like I do every morning going through all my blogs that I follow.
Well I could not believe my eyes when I read Alex’s post looking for Guest Designers.  So I went into action and emailed her and here I am. (Exciting)  Thanks Alex.

For my project today I am making a Pen and Pencil Holder, etc.  It is made from the Toilet Paper Roll!!  So I went to all my neighbors and requested all their T.P. Rolls.  I can’t get them fast enough.  Once you start making these you want to make more.

                You start with a T.P. roll.
                Cut your card stock or your choice at 4”x6.5”
                Cut another piece of the same or contrasting color for the top at 2”x5 ¾”
                And score or fold the length so you have an overhang of about ½”
                Cut Slits along the length so it is easy to fit into the T.P.  roll
                The Base is wood and cut on a Drill Press by my husband Tommy. 
                 The size is 3” in Diameter and 1/2" high.                
                 The inside hole fits the T.P. roll at 1 ½”
Assemble the above and decorate.


Thanks for stopping and sharing my day as the Guest Designer for Alex.
