My Timeless Templates

My cabana boy has the day off because I'm home!

Hey kids!
It's Saturday already and that means a new challenge from Lauren and the "My Time to Create" team. This challenge is a GREAT one! Use a My Timeless Template, designed by Lauren herself, and create a package for candy!Here's what I came up with using "From the Desk of"... To make the pops stand up on their own, I used a scrap of thick black cardstock and created an insert. I cut the cardstock to 6 x 5 1/2 inches and scored on the long side at 2" and 4".
Then I folded on the score lines and used my Crop-A-Dile to punch 5 holes for the sticks.

Then I added the pops and filled the bottom with candy corn.
These pops are super easy to make.
Apparently they're delicious too, because they've all disappeared from my workshop!

All you need are lollipop sticks, orange candy melts, large marshmallows and sprinkles. Melt the orange candy melts in the microwave according to the package directions. Push the marshmallows down onto the lollipop sticks and then dip into the candy melts. Before they harden, cover with sprinkles and then place in the refrigerator for about 10 minutes to set.

I hope you're inspired to play along with us! Be sure to check out what the rest of the design team did and upload your creation by going to Lauren's blog.

Thanks for stopping by! I'll be back on Monday and with a new challenge from the CSAYL blog to share with you.
Until then...

What a GREAT idea, MacKenzie! Love those lollipops and how you created a stand for them in the From the Desk Of template. VERY clever :O)...and cute!!

These are SO cute Mackenzie! Love your packaging idea too! I might have to make some of these for my girs' party :) FABulous! :) Hope you had a GREAT time in Hawaii!! (for real this time, since I thought you were already back the other day, LOL)

This is so cute! What a clever idea! And thanks for the recipe for the lollipops...I may make them for my students. I didn't include any candy in my project because they would have disappeared too...into my stomach! LOL! Great project!

Eye popping adorable MacKenzie! Those marshmallow pops are bound to be a huge hit this Halloween season. Thanks for sharing with us how you made the insert - it's perfect as is your whole project. I love those orange stars with purple - great colors without being a "scary" candy theme. The DT has outdone themselves this week - truly amazing projects from each and every one.

Yummy! I am making some marshmallow pops today!
Cute design BTW.
Glad you are back! I missed you!

Super Clever! I love how you were able to make the pops stand up, but used the "From the Desk of" template so they are still being showcased, and not hidden.

What an awesome fun idea! It looks great! Nice job!

Silvia said...

Awesome idea Mackenzie! I do too love that template. I think that you can use it for many things, and that's what I love about it.

Eeek! So cute! I love how you used the candy corn to support the pops. The desk of template is the perfect treat server.
