I spent most of the day in the yard mowing, weedeating, etc. This is not a job for a grandmother. I do wish my house would sell so I could get something where I don't have to keep the yard up as well as the house. OK, enough griping.
I had this piece of paper and I wanted to make some Lollipops to go on it. This is a really simple card and I spent way too much time on it. Why do I always do that? Wonder if it could be that Crafting Bug we all caught?
I used a 4.25X5.5" card base. Adhered "Happy Birthday Ribbon to the paper front, then adhered it to the card base. I punched the bottom edge of the paper with a Martha Stewart Loop Edge Punch. The lollipops are made from some twine I bought at a $1.00 store when I was visiting my son. (I saw one made from Bakers Twine and it looked really cute. I don't have any Bakers Twine and need to find out how to get it.) I started with a circle larger than I wanted my lollipop to be. Spread glue in the middle of it and start wrappingnthe twine. Add more glue as needed. After the adhesive sets, trim away excess paper. I used toothpicks for the lollipop sticks.
Thanks you for dropping by today. We appreciate you. Hope to see you next time. God Bless!!! Peggy
