Yo-Yo Lollipop--Welcome to The Candy Shoppe!


Raspberry, Cotton Candy, Bubble Gum


Orange Sorbet, Butterscotch, Strawberry


Chocolate Fizz, Lemon Lime, Mixed Berry


Wild Cherry, Fruit Punch, Blueberry


Grape


Mixed Assortment

I have been busy in the candy factory turning out flavor after flavor of calorie free lollipops. Don't they look delicious? Although not pictured, included will be a clear nylon loop for hanging onto the Christmas tree.

Sorry for the glare from the plastic bags but it couldn't be avoided no matter how hard I tried. The alternative is to leave the bags off but I wanted it to look as authentic as possible. I'm interested in knowing what you think. Should the bags be left on or omitted?


It's back to the candy factory for me. I hope you're having a fantastic day.

Aloha!

Those are so cute. I made some a few years ago with candy cane fabric. I'll have to see if I have any left. You should see the fabric I bought yesterday.

I'd leave the bags on too. I did something like this myself years ago and kept the bags on. I'll have to look for a picture. They do look yummy!

Ok, I thought maybe someone would ask. Does the back look like the front, or how do you attach the stick to the yo yo's to look like a lollipop? Those are adorable! Also, where do you buy the sticks?

I love all the little things you make. Thank you for sharing!

Bags On! Am definitely enjoying your bog! Are these trade secrets or could you answer these 2 burning questions? Buttons on front/back and how are sticks inserted! Thanks for a wonderful reading experience!

HI Lettie

Thanks for the info. I will have to go back to Jo-Ann's.
I was searching the internet yesterday and found some at fabric.com. I ordered a few 1/4 yard pieces to see if I was going to like them.
I love making Yo Yos but with my hands I was having a hard time making them. Now I use Cover Yo Yo makers, I love them.

Hi Lettie,
I would have to vote as everyone else, to leave the bags on. They just look like they are ready to open and eat. So cute.
Hugs,
Bonnie

Cutie patooooooties! I opt for the bag. No glare in persona and makes it even more adorable! I have a lil bitty tree I use too...I am wondering if I have some dumdum suckers around here I can eat for the bitty sticks......the suffering we do for our art. LOL

pegola said...

These are GREAT! I agree with everyone else about keeping the bag on. I'm wondering too how the stick is inserted. They look good enough to eat...without the calories:-) I love the sugar added also. Kathy
