Twine Lollipops Birthday Card

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
