Dino Lolli Covers!

I have boys so while most treat packaging ideas out there right now are pink and red, I made these in boy colours. They aren’t for Valentine’s Day anyway so they sure don’t want PINK {{GASP, EWW MOM!}}

Awww, aren’t these cute?? I love how the one dino looks like a tree top since he overlaps a tree on the DP! These are very quick and easy to make and use very little supplies. You can get 10 from one sheet of CS and 12 from one piece of 6x6” DP, both with a scrap leftover! It did take a while to cut out the dinos but if you had a small enough punch, it would be quicker. I only have 1/2”, too small and 1 1/4”, too big!

To make them, cut strips of cardstock, 2 x 4 1/4”. Score at 2 1/8”, the center and for the ends, I moved my paper on my score board to the 1/16” mark and scored at 3/8”. I just turned the paper to do the other end rather than trying to figure out where to score it. Cut the DP to 1 3/4” wide and 1 1/2” high.

Here you can see that I have scored the cardstock, added Scor-Tape and punched one end. NOTE: I’ve used the small end of the Crop-a-dile to punch these; I ended up using the large one and I was sure glad I had scored a bit larger than 1/4”. You want to make sure that your holes at both ends line up so I used the previous holes to mark the other end. You want to add the Scor-Tape BEFORE punching so you don’t have to piece the tape on both sides of the hole.

Easy right? I hope you try these out! Can you believe I even had brown lollis to go with. What flavour are those anyhow? Maybe root beer? Hmmm…..

Enjoy, Rebecca
