Halloween treat holder

I was talking to my downline today about Halloween school parties and ideas. I mentioned that I loved using the pink Pocket Notes as a lollipop holder for Valentine's Day. So, I thought I'd recreate the holder with black cardstock to hold a Halloween lollipop! I made the treat holder by cutting black cardstock to 2 1/2" x 7", and scoring at 3 1/4". I used the slit punch on the longer piece...coming in about 1/4" from the edge. The front flap fits under the slit.

The gray moon is the Scallop circle punch, the white ghost is the large oval trimmed with a scallop at the bottom, Frankenstein is a rectangle piece of cardstock, with black cardstock trimmed for hair...his face is drawn on. The pumpkin is from Carved and Candlelit...with the top slice off! I used the 1/8" circle punch to cut a hole in the bottom fold for the lollipop stick to fit through...the top of the lollipop fits between the two layers of black cardstock. Happy Halloween greeting is from All Holidays set.
