{ice pop holders}

I have had ice pop holders on my list forever. I don't know why I haven't done it before now, because my kids are obsessed with frozen Gogurts and are always asking for a rag to wrap around it. Well, now that ice pop season is here (anyone else call them Otter Pops?), it was time to get them done.   


The Silhouette promo for the this month is heat transfer material, and it was perfect timing, since they sent me a really fun pink color that I have been wanting to try.  

This is SO EASY. Like the easiest project ever.  And SO cute!

ITEMS YOU NEED:
  • felt 
  • hot glue
  • heat transfer material OR fabric & heat 'n bond
DIRECTIONS:
I used felt, because it's easy to cut out, holds its shape, and is really durable. Plus it's CHEAP!  I spent .60 on two squares of felt, and it made 5 ice pop holders (with some left over). I cut it into rectangles, after I held it up to both an ice pop and a gogurt to check for width and height. Make sure to leave a little extra room on the sides for the glue.

Once I had the rectangles cut with a front and back for each holder, I used hot glue to glue them together.  DO NOT USE LIQUID STITCH.  I tried it first, and it was a disaster.  I will probably end up doing mine over, because it ruined a few places on a couple of them, and it will drive me crazy.  :) Glue really close to the edges, making sure to get into the corners.

Once the glue is dry, you can add your embellishments.  Since I am in love with all things monogrammed, I added my kids' initials, along with a small border on the front.  (Century Gothic font, girls = ric rac border & boys = tiny dots border from Silhouette online store)  On the back I added the same border, and a fun little "brrr...".

Seriously people, 10 minutes.  I love that.

I shouldn't admit it, but we live on Otter pops during the summer. Love them. At the rate Utah is having horrible weather, I am loosing hope that we will ever see weather warm enough this year to have any. Yikes.

I love to call them ice lollies. It is the British term for them. It just sounds cute. I sooo want to make these this summer. Thanks for the idea.
