Today I am sharing a fun idea to make for your kids (big kids too!) for birthday parties, fun favors or they would make great little Easter gift for someone who doesn’t like chocolate!
My kids love these little lollies and these gorgeous papers from the Sweet Girl Collection from Echo Park were perfect for making these flowers.
To create the flowers I used my Cameo and this file to create the flowers. Simply cut 2 pieces from coordinating papers – making sure if you resize the cutting images that you re-size them all at the same time to keep the flowers the same sizes. I then removed two of the petals and reglued the petals to give a 3-d shape (see below)
I then put the lollipop sticks onto small wooden skewers and covered them both in washi tape to add a bit more color and disguise the join.
If you do not have a die cutting machine – NO PROBLEM! Simply search for a flower pattern online (try this one from Images by Heather M) and trace around it – then experiment with how many petals you need to remove to create the 3-d shape.
The little glass jar the flowers are standing in was fun to make too. I took a small shaker from the dollar store and put a couple of tablespoons of cheap acrylic paint into it, carefully swirled it round inside right up to the rim and then left it to dry overnight.
