A Halloween Broom with a Ghirardelli chocolate inside

Fun to make a dozen of and a great use of the smaller “left over” pieces of designer paper.   I used Halloween Night paper.  The pack includes 2 sheets that have silver embossing (one has dots the other has a spider web).   I used the sheet with the silver dots. 

Cut the paper 2 ½ x 5 ½ and score at 2 5/8 and 2 7/8, fold.

Make the lollipop stick orange with either a sharpie or roll it in Pumpkin Pie.
Glue to lollipop to the chocolate with Tear N Tape.  Glue in the chocolate with Tear N Tape (I bought these in toffee crunch so they look "halloweeny" and taste good too!

Now make the broom from a piece of black cardstock 2 ½ by 2 ½ and a second (even a third piece) that is 2 ½ x 2 and then 2 ½ x 1 ¾.  Cut these pieces with the fringe scissors.  Glue to the front of the designer paper.  Curl the edges of the broom up a bit.  Stamp a greeting, add Halloween dots and then adhere to the top of the broom.  

Make lots and give them away!  I'm thinking of selling these at a craft fair... what do you think $1 or $2 a broom?  I'm thinking a $1... I'd love your advice!
