"Popsicle Card"


I saw these the other day on Patty Bennett's blog. Are they cute or what? Yes, they are. How fun it was to make a bunch of these up. I am going to do some more and package them up as sets. They make great summer birthday cards or invites to birthday's or BBQ's. I was going to make them for my up coming class at the parks and rec but my scallop punch wasn't cooperating with me punching through two pieces of cardstock. I talked to Patty and she said that she punched one corner first and then lined up the other side and punched the back out so they matched up. Brilliant! LOL So if you are making these, that is a tip. You guys are always lucky with my directions. Cause you get to learn from my mistakes and do it right the first time with no frustrations. Ha ha ha. For the grapes, I used a hand held circle punch and punched out 10 circles, glued them down in a triangle shape, and then punched them out with the SU 1 1/4 inch punch. That way they were perfectly in the circle. For the leaf I just eye balled it and cut it out. The greeting is from Birthday Whimsy but is is hard to see in the picture cause it is the same color as the cardstock. On the inside from the same set it says ...and many more. Patty used a rectangle ribbon punch to weave the Popsicle stick through, I just glued mine down so that the completed card measures 5 1/2 tall and will fit in a A2 envelope. The inside white piece is popped up with dimensionals.

Cut your cardstock 5 x 4 score in half so the card measures 4 x 2 1/2 the white inside piece is cut to 2 1/4 x 3 3/4

Rochelle - these are amazing! Thanks for sharing. I already made 4 sets of them with an orange, lime, cherry and fudge popsicle in each set. I can't wait to give them away. Oh..and thanks to the post above for the idea of the ice cream gift card inside. I'm going to do that today and write inside "thanks for being a COOL teacher"
