For this hop I took a cute idea from Pinterest for a small valentine's day gift for my coworkers. Inside the package is a cherry lollipop. It's a quick and easy project.
To make these cute lollipop holders, cut the base red cardstock 2 1/4 inches by 6 1/2 inches and score at the 2 1/2 and 4 inch marks. Fold on the score marks. I tried various ways to adhere the paper around the pop but found that scoretape worked best. The chickie with a heart balloon is stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black ink then colored with Copic markers (Y11, Y15, YR04 and R29). The chickie is topped with yellow Stickles and the balloon is covered with crystal laquer and some red gems are adhered to the circle. The edges are distressed with Walnut Stain distress ink. White ribbon is tied around the pop stick.
I'll be finishing up the 20 little valentine's day gifts on Sunday while hopping through the blogs. Please leave me a message and let me know what you think.
Michele Gross is the next artist in the hop. Head over to her blog and enjoy all of the ideas you'll see along the way.
