Cheerful Treats Sucker Holder Weekend Project

Yup, there's 40 suckers there!!!  I did one a while back with 50 suckers.  Now that was difficult to get into the Styrofoam square.  40 was much easier.  I think 30 wouldn't be enough.  You'd need a smaller cube for that or bigger suckers so the foam doesn't show.

I covered 5 of the sides of the cube in Bashful Blue card stock.  On top of that I added squares of the decorative paper from the "Cheerful Treats" download.  "Cheerful Treats" sounded like the perfect name for paper for a project like this!!! It was indeed cheerful!!!  Once the dp was in place I tied a ribbon around the cube. 

The words were printed out on the computer and punched out.  I used the die cut to make the scallop.  I glued it on a thin wooden stick I had.  I don't remember what the stick was from but a chopstick will work too.  Just remember, you are only allowed one set per dinner purchased.  Don't go taking a bunch for crafting.  I have a nice little stash of them because I ask for a set each time I order Chinese food.  So be kind and only take what what you are entitled to.  

Once I got the outside all decorated I added the word stick in the middle.  Then I started putting the suckers in.  

When I had made the 50th birthday one a while back I had gotten the idea from my friend Sara.  She has "Sara's Creative Adventures" blog.  Go check it out.  She has a lot of fun things on there to make, great cards to see and other things to spark your interests!!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
