Treat Wrapper Inspired

Hello there friends,
Today I'm sharing a little concoction brewing in the depths of Studio K---> my craft room :)  I really liked the lollypop wrapper dies I've seen, but I thought they were a bit pricey---> even for me, Miss "OMG! I luv that! I have to have that! I don't care how much it costs!" Well, I thought it was too much for just one die :( so my brain started thinking... I took a couple of Tylenol... and then it hit me. Why don't I try to make my own version using my Gypsy, of course :) So in to Studio K I went & came out with my own version.
Here's what I made:
These are inspired by the lollypop wrappers. This is a cute way to dress up those yummy lollies, but I thought why stop there? 
Here's what's inside:
How about a cake pop!
Here's how easy it is to put together:
Other wrappers have two holes where you'd lace your twine or ribbon through, but I simply wrapped around the "neck" of the wrapper & tied a knot and that held it together just fine.
Now the fun part: DECORATE!
Here's another cake pop wrapper:
And a peek of the innies:
The next one does have a lollypop-

a See's Limited Edition Christmas Mint:
For this one, I kept it super simple- no pattern paper. Just used white cardstock, ran it through my Snowflake embossing folder, punched out a couple of MS snowflakes & added some Stickles for sparkle.

Oh, how about a peek of the backsides:
I added a cute little tag for the recipient :)

But don't think you can only use these for pops of some kind, nooooooo.
Take a peek at this one:

 And the innies:
A few candy cane kisses :) i added 6 in the same size baggie as the cake pops. For this one, I simply stapled the baggie & wrapper closed & added the embellishment on top.

I hope this gives you some sweet ideas to wrap up some sweet treats! You can use these for so many other treats as well :)

Soooo, am I sharing?
Oh, friends 'tis my Christmas/Hanukkah/ Kwanzaa/Diwali/ gift to you! :)
You can download the PDF template---> HERE.
You can download the GYPSY file---> HERE.  You can get 4 wrappers from a 12x12 sheet of paper.
(You'll need the George & Basic Shapes & Sweet Treats Cartridges to cut them out. I simply welded two party hats & a rectangle :)

SCORING Directions: I tried to create little notches to help you know where to score, but it can be difficult to see them especially with pattern paper, as I discovered :(  The template has the directions on the page, but if you're downloading the GYPSY file, I found that the best places to score are at 3 3/8" and 5 1/8". Be sure your paper is butting up on the left hand edge of your scoring board, if you're using that.

You can find the cello baggies I used at Mike's. They are the small 3"x4" size & come in  pack of 100.

I bought a cake pop machine so the boys & I are going to have fun making a few. Hope some make it to the wrappers! :)

Happy holiday crafting!

  6. I love these candy wrappers Karli! Thanks for the pdf file! I made cake pops with my nieces on Sunday -- messy but they had fun. (I don't have a cake pop maker, so we had to form them by hand.)
    Thanks for sharing your talents with us. Wishing you and your family a very Merry Christmas and a safe, prosperous and laughter filled new year!
