I got up this morning and thought I need to create a favor that just screams “summer” – ice screams ;).  While the rest of the family went out for breakfast, I quickly worked on a prototype — figuring out the size and the measurements.  Before I was able to complete things, they came home and my daughter found that the cello lesson she was to give needed to be postponed.  She wanted to do a little running around to pick up a few things that she needed.  We headed out for a couple of hours and after taking care of business we dropped into the shoe store — we love shoes.  Now while she gives her lesson, I’ve finished up and want to share!

Don’t these popsicles look yummy?!

They will be a fun addition to a summer party of most any kind or add them to a birthday party during any season.

I’ve used Peekaboo Peach and Sweet Sugarplum cardstock to make my boxes.

Peekaboo Peach Sweet Sugarplum

To make the box

Popsicle Box diagram - from theartfulinker.com

you’ll want a piece of cardstock measuring 5-1/2″ x 6-1/2″.

Score it at 1-1/2″ on all four sides.

After burnishing the score lines with your Bone Folder, take your snips and cut the tabs along the score lines as shown.  You’ll want to take a small notch out of both sides of the small tabs.  This will make the tabs fit more nicely when they are folded in.

Add Tear and Tape to the small tabs and fold them in and adhere to the side pieces to form the box and burnish.

You’ll need another piece of cardstock to create the wrap that the box fits inside.

This piece measures 3-1/2″ x 8-1/2″.  Score at 2-1/2″, 4-1/16″, 6-11/16″, and 8-1/8″.

Trim a small amount off of each corner of the small tab before adding Tear and Tape.  Burnish each of the score lines.

Using the long stripe stamp in Gorgeous Grunge, stamp two stripes on the large middle section of the over wrap.  I’ve stamped in Flirty Flamingo and Peekaboo Peach.  The tone on tone ink shows up just a bit darker on the same color cardstock.

Next, add a line of glue across the top and down one side of each stripe with the Fine Tip Glue Pen.  Then, sprinkle the glue with Dazzling Diamonds glittler.

While that’s drying, add half a craft stick to the end of the box with hot glue.  Once the hot glue has cooled, tie a bow of coordinating 3/8″ Ruched Ribbon.  Add 6″ of Silver Sequin Trim to the Sweet Sugarplum bow and 6″ of Gold Sequin Trim to the Peekaboo Peach bow.

Now, it’s time to fold the wrap around the box.  Once the wrap is around the box, pull the covering off the Tear and Tape and adhere.  Fitting the wrap this way will make sure that you can easily slide the box in and out of the wrap.

Finally, add Playful Palette washi to the bottom edge of each popsicle box wrap to finish it.

The boxes are the perfect size for
