Hello and happy National Lollipop Day! Drea here with the FotoBella Design Team, and I'm featuring these treats on a card made with the Bo Bunny Sweet Moments Collection from FotoBella.com.
I punched the edges of the green paper from the 12 X 12 Collection Pack, and layered the large die cut from the Noteworthy Pack on top, after blending the edges with Black Soot Distress Ink. Then I added the cake from the Layered Chipboard.
The sentiment was done with the alpha stickers found in the Bo Bunny Forever Young Collection.
To make the lollipops you'll need some circles cut from white cardstock. I cut mine on my Cricut Expression at 1 1/4". Then you'll need some embroidery thread in white and your color of choice. Cut the threads at three feet long, and divide the white thread in half, so you're left with three strands. Make a knot on the end, and with a sewing needle, pierce through the center of your circle.
Add a generous amount of glue to the center half of circle, and start twisting your threads while forming a spiral. Continue to twist and glue until you've covered the circle completely.
To make the stick, simply cut the swabs off the ends of a Q-Tip, and tie a ribbon on top.
I hope you'll try these lollipops, and have a real one too, on this National Lollipop Day! Thanks for looking, and get the Bo Bunny Sweet Moments Collection at FotoBella.com!
