A Quick Variation

With just a few tweaks, I used our new (large) Kokeshi Candy Stamp to make a quick and easy lollipop cover:

I started with a strip of card stock, 1-1/2" x 6".  Using a 1/8" hole punch, I punched 2 holes close to each edge of the paper (you can fold your paper in half, lengthwise, to match up the holes on each edge). Stamp, color and cut out just the kokeshi part of the stamp (I paper-pieced her kimono and obi).  Next, center and stamp front and back images as shown below:

Mount your kokeshi onto the card stock using double stick foam.  On the flip side of your lollipop cover, put a strip of double stick tape down the center...this will hold your lollipop in place.  Then simply fold the lollipop cover over the lollipop, thread a ribbon through the previously punched holes and tie a ribbon.  You can add a "Happy Girl's Day" sentiment if you choose.
