>Tutorial: How to create a StixNpops Arrangement

15 Feb


1. Materials

  • A base: Bucket, floral pot,  or basket
  • Floral Styrofoam
  • Tissue Paper Scrunchies on Stix (preferible on small bamboo sticks) the tissue paper can be just white, or combined with other colors to match your party decorations
  • Curly Ribbons on Stix. You can get creative and combine as many colors as you want, to match your party

2. Arranging the StixNpops

Start with you base, secure in your floral styrofoam. In this sample I stacked 2 floral foams and atached with a wooden stick.
Take your first StixNpop and find the front-center of the base.
For the Arrangement we are going to be arranging the StixNpops on 2 Rows, I will do each arrangement of 5 StixNpops, but you make them of 6, 8, 10 or 12 StixNpops, it depends on how big your Base is.

Before putting it in the foam, take your StixNpop by the Stick and Pull up the poly bag-like shown in the pic (you do not want to pull down the bag while inserting the stick, by doing this you may damage any sugar decoration on the StixNpops)

Insert it in all the way down into the foam, and at  the front -center (think of it as the first row) of the base.

Since I am making this arrangement of just 5 StixNpops, I will put 3 StixNpops in the First Row.
I take the second one and put it next to my centered one, but i just incline it a bit, like in a 60  degrees angle to the left.

The third one I put it on the right, also at a 60 degree Angle

All the StixNpops of the Front Row, insert them all the way into the foam

Now I start in the second row

I take my fourth StixNpops and I put in the second row, behind the First SNP and the second SNP, but kind of in the middle of them, and you just insert the Stick half the way into the Foam

For the Fifth on, do the same as you did for the previous one, just on the other side 

Here I am just showing you how it will look with 6 StixNpops. You can also see better in this pic how the Sticks of the SNP are inserted into to foam
3. Filling with Tissue Paper Scrunchies on Stix

Take your Tissue Paper Scrunchies, and start filling the  Front base of the arrangement

Continue filling in, until you can’t see the foam

This is how it looks with all the Tissue Paper scrunchies covering the base. You can leave it like this, or add a bit more “bling” I recommend the next step the Curling Ribbons!
Adding the Curly Ribbons Stix
Make some curling ribbons and add a couple to a bamboo stix, make several curly ribbons sticks, about 6-8 per arrangement
Distribute the curly ribbons through out the base of the arrangement. It will look good if you let some curly ribbons hang over the edge.

…and there you have it! a cute arrangement of StixNpops Edible Favors, not only cute to display at your Party’s table, matching with all your decor, but the best part is that these cute creatures are your guests’ favors!!!

Your guests will be delighted to take home one of these!!!
You will keep them forever in your memories, and on those great party Photos!!! They’ll look Phenomenal!!!
*You can also add bows, or flowers to decorate the base of the arrangement, get creative. 
*Instead of Tissue Paper scrunchies you can use decorative shredded paper.
*Use your imagination and make your StixNpops Arrangements a work of Art!!!

Here are some pics of some other arrangements
