I saw this cute idea over at Design Mom via 24-7-365. I’m happy with how they turned out, especially considering how little time we had today to figure out the best way to make them. Luckily, we remembered to have the kids hold their fists out to the side a little so the suckers didn’t end up in front of their faces. You can add text to the photos in PhotoShop if you have it. We don’t, so I used an open source application called Gimp.
Will and Lily wrote their classmates’ names on the backs and then we stuck the Tootsie Roll pops through the two slits I’d made in each with a little cutting tool from an old scrapbooking kit. You could use an exacto knife or any really sharp blade. I taped the Tootsie Roll pops in the back to keep them from slipping out.
