The Partiologist: The Twelve Days of Push Pops - Day 1 - Gingerbread Man

The Twelve Days of Push Pops - Day 1 - Gingerbread Man

Do you think you're up for this?  Twelve days of my Push Pop creations?  Or would you rather I just posted them all at once to get it over with? 

Gingerbread Push Pop

Oh wait, some might ask...what in the world is a push pop?? 

I know this because my sister asked, so I better fill you in. 

They are little plastic containers that you fill up with goodies and push them out to eat! 

Here they are before I got ahold of them.

I'm starting this early so you can have them finished before you get too busy!

And now that you know what they are, I have lots and lots of ideas of what you can do with them this Christmas. 

Plus, I'll be GIVING AWAY one dozen Push Pop containers at the end of my Push Pop Series!

Then you can decorate them however you like! 

All you have to do is become a follower and leave me a comment under any of my Push Pop posts - it's open to all US residents. 

*This giveaway has ended*

Here goes -

On the First Day of Push Pops, my true love gave to me - JUST KIDDING - they really have nothing to do with the song other than I made twelve designs. 

First up is my probably one of my favorites - The Gingerbread Push Pop. 

Started with brown shipping paper, rick rack and buttons.

I cut a pattern out of card stock that would fit the Push Pop container and used it each time.

Don't forget to save it!

Trace around the pattern on the brown paper and cut it out. 

Wrap the paper around the Push Pop container and glue down the back. 

Start with one end of the red rick rack, wrap it around and glue it down. 

Do that with the other two colors. 

I used a smaller size rick rack than what is pictured.

Added buttons - so, what do you think?  Cute and easy!

Now I needed to come up with something really sweet to go inside the container - no worries.

I made cute little gingerbread cookies with faces.

You could fill it with little gingerbread cookies or fake it don't make it!

You can fill with store bought Sixlets!  If your school doesn't allow home made treats, I'll show ideas of things to buy.

So that completes The First Day of Push Pops!
