Jessica here with a fun summer treat for you- and a SUPER easy one at that!
A few weeks ago, THIS card by Sarah Milbourn caught my eye and I thought the lollipops were SO adorable I knew just what I wanted to create. I'm sure there are a lot of FUN lollipop projects with Twine out there that I haven't even seen yet, but all I know is I was SUPER anxious to get started on a project of my own! Just in time for a "SWEET" summer, indeed!
It also brings back SWEET memories. Every year, we'd go on our one family vacation up to Door County, WI to stay at my Grandma's house- usually for about two weeks at a time. Maybe once a week, my Dad would take us to "The Yum-Yum Tree", a local ice cream and candy shoppe in town. It was always SUPER difficult to decide if I wanted Bubble Gum or Butter Brickle ice cream or if I wanted a giant lollipop soooo similar to the one on my card today! Ahhh, sweet memories. Love my Dad and so enjoyed celebrating him on Father's Day yesterday!
Ok! So, after stamping and coloring my image, I applied some glue onto the lollipop. This was even easier for me than making hand-designed ones because I had the image as a 'template' of sorts to follow! Fun! Here's the image about half way covered with Twine.
I also snuck in some Blossom twine between my two different types of designer paper behind my flower. Normally I would think to use ribbon but the twine REALLY gives it a cute and simple look, don't you think? I like that it doesn't 'take away' from my focal point either.
Here's my finished product, good enough to eat:
