Welcome to the Hop!!

Welcome to the blog hop and thanks for stopping by! I'm have a scary Easter fact for you!(Whispers!) Not everyone likes chocolate Easter treats! Nooooo! How can that be??!! Any way, if you know one of these unusual peeps and want to give them a sweet treat read on and try my lolly bouquet!You will need about 6-9 lollies, coloured tissue,vellum and double sided tape.

Wrap your lolly head in coloured tissue.

Twist and secure with tape.

Fill a little tub or pot with a lump of plasticine. I've used an ice cream carton. Cover the inside with some tissue and then decorate the outside of the container.

Punch out 5 or 6 circles of vellum and attach to the double sided tape to make a flower.

Finally, you need to cut out some leaf shapes. Add some double sided tape to the end and you can add them to the lolly sticks or side of the pot for a bit more body. Pop your flowers in the pot and you're done.

And this is your finished bouquet! Quite sweet isn't it?

So we mentioned giveaway's! Well I'm doing a teeny little personal one.It's pictured below and includes a May Rd mini book,Tando Creative cutouts,8x8 vellum( for you to have a go!), a crafter'sworkshop 6x6 template and some cute wooden flowers that I use for everything!

Just come across your lovely blog and looking forward to seeing more. The lolly flowers look great, but how do you eat them without destroying the flowers? That would be my problem!
