I ran out the my local pharmacy the day after Christmas and couldn’t believe that they had Valentine candy on the shelves. So I took advantage of this and picked up some lolly pop bundles. There are 6 heart shaped lolly pops on long thin plastic sticks in a bouquet. I added my own touch to it and think it turned out pretty darling:
This was actually not that hard to make and it is all Stampin’ Up! products.
I started out using Pick A Petal stamp set and stamped some petals with Wild Wasabi ink on Whisper White CS. Cut out and adhered right beneath the heart lolly pops with Mini Glue Dots.
I wanted to cover up the white plastic sticks of the lolly pops so I covered with strips of Wild Wasabi CS, Sticky Strip & a 2-Way Glue Pen. To make the very bottom of the “stem” neater, I simply continued to wrap a 1/4″ strip of Wild Wasabi CS and used a 1/2″ Circle Punch to cover the bottom:
For the tag, I kept it simple but added some little touches. Have you seen Spellbinders Nestabilities (that everyone is using) but wanted to stick to using Stampin’ Up! products? Well, take advantage of the Classy Brass Template Punches Plus…much more affordable and coordinates with the Stampin’ Up! punches. I started out dry embossing the large square on the template to a piece of Kraft CS, stamped the “xoxoxo” from Holiday Blitz stamp set with Wild Wasabi ink, punched out with my 1-3/8″ Square Punch, then used my 1/8″ Circle Punch to one of the upper corners. Next, stamped the heart circle image from Holiday Blitz stamp set with Regal Rose ink on Whisper White CS, punched out with my 3/4″ Circle Punch, attached to tag with a Stampin’ Dimensional, and added some paper-piercing details using the template. Wrapped Hemp Twine several times around the base of the leaves, threaded up through the hole of the tag, and tied a knot:
A sweet bouquet to give to the special someone.
Have a wonderful weekend:)
