Take a piece of white construction paper and fold it as if you were making a fan. In the middle of the folded paper poke a hole, you will also need to poke a small hole into what is now the top of the cup. Wrap a small white tissue over a lollypop and draw a face onto it. Poke the Lollypop through the folded paper and then down into the hole in the cup. Allow the paper to fan out on either side. Write a persons name onto the cup and place it at their seat. It will look very cute, while helping people know where to sit. These are great for weddings and baby showers as well.
