This is a cute craft that you can do for Halloween! Under the broom, there’s a lollipop hiding!!! It’s a great little gift for someone special in your life! I saw this idea on “Stampin’Connection”, the Stampin’up demonstrator website. Thanks to Janet Yates for sharing this idea!!!
I made the broom by cutting a layer of 2-1/2″ wide by 8-1/2″ long Crushed Curry card stock in strips like this: (cut to about 3/8″ at the top).
Then I rolled it on itself and inserted the lollipop through in the center. I glued the end with Multipurpose Liquid glue. I used a glue dot to make sure that the “broom” would not fall off the stick. I added a linen thread to secure in place, and mostly for decoration!
I used the Owl Builder punch to make the owl, adding a witch hat (which I drew by hand). I used some googly eyes (from the Holiday mini-catalogue) and also the Champagne glimmer paper (p.18 in the mini-catalogue) to add some “bling”. To attach the owl on the lollipop, I made like a “loop” with orange card stock and glued it at the back.
