Here is my version of Martha's Valentine Lollipops. Pictured here on my daughter's Valentine's Day initial tee from my shop.
- Patterned scrapbook paper in pinks, reds, ginghams, dots from your own collection
- Hole Punch
- Clear Tape
- Pink Tootsie Roll Pops
- List of your child's classmates or friends (Mary, Tucker, Ella, Connor, etc.)
- Make a pattern heart from cardstock or poster (approximately 4" tall and 3" wide)
- Count the number of valentines you are making with your child
- Multiply this number by three (3 hearts per lollipop "stem")
- Turn your scrapbook paper over and trace your pattern heart as many times as needed on the back of your paper
- Cut out your hearts and have your child decorate or you can write their names on their now (example - "To: Ella" "Love, Mia")
- Wrap clear tape around the base wrapper of each lollipop to keep the edges down when you are sliding your heart petals up the sticks
- Hole punch your hearts toward the middle/bottom of the heart (I punched 3 times, close together in a triangle to make a hole large enough for the stick to slide into, but not too big so that your heart slides back down the stick)
- Slide three hearts up the lollipop stick, rotate the hearts to make a flower
- Tie with a ribbon bow and your done!
Your teachers and your fellow mommy-friends will be so impressed with you!
