Quilled Valentine Lollipop Covers

Published by at 1:22 pm under Quilling with Kids,Valentine Quilling

Valentine’s Day is almost upon us, but there is still time to make some fun candy covers.  This would be a great quilling project to do together with the kids since you can make your own lollipop covers as simple or elaborate as you wish.

For the youngest ones, you could try a simple “Be My Valentine” sentiment with heart scrolls of various sizes or a quilled heart made from two teardrops.  Older children would have fun thinking up their own quilling designs and matching sayings. 

 

To make the lollipop cover, cut a piece of card stock 5-1/2 inches long and 2-1/2 inches wide.  Score it at 2-1/2 inches, 2-3/4 inches, and 3 inches and fold accordion style so that the cover can adapt to the thickness of your particular lollipop.  Line up the edges and punch two holes for the ribbon.

To assemble the covers:  glue your quilling onto the front of the cover; fold it around your lollipop making sure that the lollipop stick is between the two holes; thread a ribbon through the holes and tie into a bow.

 

If you need a little help getting started,  just search for “vintage Valentines” online.  I found wonderful inspiration for my Valentine sentiments from Skip to My Lou’s blog post, “Cute Sayings for Valentines Day.”
