Simply Sweet

I love browsing Pinterest for new ideas and to get my creative juices flowing. While pinning recently, I got inspiration from a very cute lollipop card by Julie Day.  Here is my version below.



It is such a fun card! Who would not want to receive this in the mail?

It was my turn to prepare a make-n-take project at our team meeting this month (Woohoo Kindred Inkers!) so I decided this would be the card to make. For the lollipop base I adhered Stampin' Up's Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets to some Whisper White card stock and ran it through my big shot using the Circles #2 Original Die. I started my spiral using Cherry Cobbler Bakers Twine in the center of the circle and worked my way out. It takes a few minutes to complete this part but it is totally worth it! I bought a package of Wilton Lollipop Sticks at Michaels and then tied a bow around it to finish it off.

Let me know if you make this card! We had discussions of what size circle to use for the base, my preference was a larger circle but I think mini lollipops would be cute as well.

One last note, if you have a Pinterest account I would love for you to check out my boards here. Thanks for stopping by!

  2. I made the card and it wasn't as bad as I thought it was going to be winding up all that Baker's Twine. I will be making this card again. Thanks for the idea, Boni you rock!
