Hey my sweet friends! Now that you have the Lollipop song stuck in your head I can show you what I made.
It's a paper lollipop!!! And a shaker one too!!! Weeee!!!! Lol Sorry, I think I lost it for a moment, but I think this is so much fun!!! :D I'm sure you've seen these lollipops around the Blogland before. I've been meaning to make one of these for ages, but haven't gotten around to do it til now. And now I think I'm hooked. I had so much fun making this! Never mind the Lollipop song that was stuck in my head the whole time I was making the lolli. Lol
I started with a strip of a 12x12 paper to make a rosette. Then I used a doily in the back and one of the die cuts, some pearls and a micro dot ribbon from Crafty ribbons to decorate the front. Most of the paper lollipops I've seen online used paper straws, but I didn't have any at home and couldn't find any in the store, so I just used a bbq stick that I covered with gesso. I think that works well too.
The adorable kitty is a TGF stamp and is part of the Mini-remix Happy set. I did the colouring with Promarkers and Faber Castell pencils. I was originally planning to use clear micro beads for the shaker, but guess what ... I didn't have any at home. It was my mum who gave me the idea to use those teeny tiny beads that I have among my jewelry making supplies instead. Thanks mum! :) I'm glad I found some use for those after all this time. :)
Well, so much from me today. Have a wonderful day!
I'd like to enter my lollipop to the following challenges:
