Sucker Cover Tutorial

Learn to dress up an everyday sucker for your next special occassion.
These are the little treats Nicholas helped make for his preschool friends for Valentine's Day! He ws so very proud when he walked into school carrying them this afternoon!
To begin, gather the needed supplies. Paper Trimmer with both cutting and scoring blades, Soft Set Eyelet Tool & Mat, Mini Glue Dots, Tulip Exclusive Ink Pad, 2" x 2" Acrylix Block, B&T Paper (from the Perfect Day paper collection), Tulip & Colonial White Cardstock, Heart Sucker, (D1194) All My Love Stamp Set.
1. Begin by cutting the B&T paper to 7 1/4" x 2 1/4". Cut the Tulip Cardstock to 1 3/4" x 2". Cut the Colonial White Cardstock to 1 1/2" x 1 3/4" .
2. Next, ink the heart stamp of choice with Tulip Exclusive ink and stamp onto the Colonial White Cardstock. Add sentiment "Be Mine" if desired.

3. Next, using the backside of the B&T paper, score the paper at the following measurements:
2 1/2", 3", 5 3/4" and 6 1/4". Fold the paper at the score lines.

4. Using the Soft Set Eyelet tool and the setting mat,
punch a hole in the center of the 5 3/4" score line.

5. Adhere the stamped heart piece to the Tulip mat and then adhere both pieces to the front of the sucker cover. This is in the middle section. Press firmly to secure.

6. Place a Mini Glue Dot on the back of the sucker and then weave the stick thru the hole. Once the sucker is in the desired spot, press the sucker lightly to the back of the cover so that the Mini Glue dot attaches.

7. Apply three-five Mini Glue Dots to the bottom of the flap of the cover.

8. Fold the cover over so that it meets the front. Press firmly over where the glue dots are positioned so that the flap creates a seal.

The project is complete.
