Amidst all the excitement over the release of Sheri Berry's Costume Clubhouse Collection late last week, did you notice that the Cut Its version of Apple On A Stick and Pretty Pops were also made available on the Lettering Delights website? I wouldn't be surprised if you didn't because I found them on Page 3 under the "What's New" tab even though they are brand spanking new.
Does anyone remember my Zoku pops? I was so amused to see a Cut Its set for the fancy popsicles that I just had to cut everything out as soon as I got a hold of the file.
Don't they look yummy? I took several pictures of these popsicles but I will show them to you at another time. Today I will share with you what I did with the Apple On A Stick set instead.
The apple set comes with 14 files including 9 different candied and caramel apples and a card base.
Making candied apple cards is fun but these are also great as candy wrappers.
Anyone wants to make a guess what I tucked inside the card?
There's a Caramel Apple lollipop inside every apple! I didn't even need to adjust the size of the SVGs when I imported the image into Make-the-Cut! I just imported them at Actual and 72 DPI.
Assembling these treats is super easy. Just place a lollipop inside each card, wrap some twine to keep the cards closed, and finish with a flag. Speaking of the flags, I made them using Make-the-Cut. In fact, I cut out all the apples using Make-the-Cut, and my Silhouette SD.
Once again, and just like my previous card, I used the rhinestone tool to create the dotted outline. I used the LDJ Hearth font for the label and printed and cut the flags out. This is how the flags looked like in the Print Preview mode in Make-the-Cut and....
.....this is how they look like after they have been printed out:
I think that the printed flags/labels gives a nice and professional look that completes the project beautifully.
Instead of labeling the apples, you can also use the flags as gift tags. Just write "To:...." and "From:...." in place of "Candied Apple" or "Caramel Apple". How cute will these treats look when they are put inside the apple basket? I filled up my basket with candy corn but it would be too cute to have the lollipops inside it too.
The Apple On A Stick set also includes a cut file for an apple core. In case, anyone wants to see how the cutout looks like, here is one that I put together:
The banner on the right is not included in the set. I made it just for fun and using the Pennants SVG set.
Halloween will be upon us in just under 3 weeks and I'm putting together goodie bags for my kids' friends and classmates now. We have a lot of treats in the house but my favorite isn't one that I put together. My youngest saw me assembling the caramel apple pops yesterday and wanted to get into the action too. I gave her a blank card base and this is what she gave back to me:
I think that's the best treat that I've received this season. :)
