Dum Dum Sucker Tutorial

Isn’t this just the cutest thing? I made this earlier this month at our quarterly Stamp Share. I need to give you a little information first so you’re not confused. My upline (manager/boss) is Sue. And Sue’s upline is Terri. Terri is the one who puts the Stamp Share on each quarter. It is an absolutely fabulous time. We have demo’s and sharing of ideas. There’s always card samples and 3-D samples. Terri demonstrates some fun projects. There’s a business meeting part and a fabulous and fun Make & Take at the end. This item was January’s Make & Take.

ALL products here are by Stampin’ Up!
You need some Real Red, Regal Rose and Whisper White card stock.
Real Red and Regal Rose markers
Scallop, 1-1/4" Round and a 1-3/8" Round punch
Pink Brad
2 Gold Brads
Flower punch from the "Three for You" kit
Mat Pack
Piercing Tool
Dum Dum Sucker

You will need a piece of red card stock cut 6-1/2" x 2".

Score this piece at 3/4", slide it over and score at 2-3/4".

Turn and repeat scoring on other end. Turning it allows you to have both ends come out the exact same size.

Fold the two scored lines that are closest to the center inward. The two that are closest to the edges fold them outward. Setting it upright the paper will look live a "V"

Bring the top pieces together. Taking the piercing tool and the foam piece from the Mat Pack, poke holes two holes for the gold brads. These brads hold the piece closed. You can add one brad but wait until you have added the scallop to the sucker stick to close the other brad.
The stamp set used here is the new "Happy Heart Day." SO cute and versatile.

Punch out two red scallops, one Regal Rose (1-3/8") and after stamping your flower image line up the round 1-1/4" punch and punch out the circle. Stamping the image first allows you to have your image better centered. Color in your flower. Affix the flower to the Regal Rose and affix that piece to the red scalloped piece. Set one red scalloped piece on your work surface. Add the Dimensionals and expose the tape. Set the sucker stick on top of the scalloped piece and sandwich it in between the finished scalloped piece. Insert the candy part of the sucker into the opening of the red scored piece. Hold it shut with the brad.

This one used the cute tag punch in the set. It was punched out in white and layered on Regal Rose card stock. The two pieces were taped together and then slipped under the "cuff" of the red scored piece. Isn’t that just the cutest idea? Terri is SO creative. Ok now tie on your bow and it’s ready to set upright.

Then Terri showed us how to use this project for other occasions by using double-sided decorative paper. She cut the sides a bit to make it more of a flowerpot shape and now it’s a perfect gift for someone’s desk. It can be used as a little thank you, birthday and thinking of you gifts. It can also be used as a place card and these would be fabulous for bridal or baby showers.

I can't even begin to tell you how lucky I am to be a part of Sue's group which allows me to be a part of Terri's group. I am among some VERY talented people. Both groups are a wealth of information and let me tell you how wonderful it is to be among a group full of wonderful talented people who are all "Minnesota Nice." Even the ones who come from the Dakotas, Wisconsin and Iowa!!! LOL We converted them!!! LOL
