Let’s start things off with the lollipop treat holder. I purchased these at my local Dollar General. They are a super economical treat. You get 18 in a bag for $1.00. You can create four treat holders with one sheet of Real Red CS. Want a tip? Cut your card stock 7″ x 10″ then score it, on the 7″ side, at 3 3/8″ and 3 5/8″. Now that the sheet is all scored cut your 2 1/2″ strips that will create your treat holder. That’s the way to mass produce. Don’t worry all the details and complete supply list are listed below.
