Lollipop Bouquet

Lollipop Bouquet

Or wolly-pops as my daughter would call them!

I thought since kids often celebrate their birthdays in school that Jordyn could bring goodies to her dance class. I asked her what treat she wanted to bring and wolly-pops was her choice!

I couldn't just give out a plain old piece of candy and came up with this idea!

Flowers were cut from Mini Monograms at 3 and 4 inches. I cut a slit into the middle of each flower, wrapped it around the lollipop and used small pieces of tape to insure it keeping in place. Butterflies is a MS punch (my only one which is why I use it so often) cut from orange glitter paper. PP is DCWV spring stack 2009.

I have to laugh at my "vase"! I couldn't find anything the right size until I came across my flour sifter. Totally kid friendly and has a handle! Perfect!

My little girl picked the paper (just glad they had so many coordinating prints!)

Happy Hump Day!
