Meet the Lollipop Critters


The Girl Scout Christmas party was a raging success!  It was such a blast we ran out of time and sent the Lollipop Critters home for completion.  But, here's a little picture of each critter and how they turned out. 

I used dum-dum suckers and I think they would have been cuter with a little bigger, rounder sucker.  I'm now wondering if Tootsie-Pops would have worked? 

I was a little disappointed with Santa, he just looks a little rough around the edges.  It's probably because I just unrolled a cotton ball and glued it on.  I'm sure giggly girl scouts could have had way more fun gluing on the cotton for his hat and beard! 

But, those googley eyes really make these little critters pop, don't they?

And I did shrink them down quite a bit from the original version, so maybe next year we'll make the full sized ones instead!  Happy Holidays!

Update: November 29, 2015
I've gotten a handful of emails requesting these cutting files since posting these little critters, and I rarely check my email so a handful of folks have been left waiting for a reply that never came - sorry folks.  I've uploaded the SVG files to Dropbox and you can access them via this link:  If you use the link and are able to use the cutting files, please leave a comment so I know it's working.  Happy Holidays!

    1. Thanks Joy! I was very happy with my little Silhouette after cutting out about thirty of these little paper critters!
