Quoting ThaMCE:I am!!!I had a great craft My DD and I did last year and we're planning on doing it again! I made lollipop heart flowers. They are sooo cute! I wanted an inexpensive alternative to regular old commercialized cards, so I looked up some crafts on www.marthastewart.com (gotta love that lady!) I used construction paper (you can also use cardstock) and folded it in 1/2 lengthwise. Cut down the middle and fold your 2 halves again. You should have enough to cut out 4 heart shapes per 1/2 paper. Write the "To" and "From" names at this point.Get a hole punch that punches out the really small holes (I think they're 1/8" holes). Punch the holes on the pointed end of the heart.I bought a big bag of Dum Dum pops (about $3), and each flower uses 4 of the hearts(in a North, South, East, West fashion). And put the stick through the holes. This was such a fun and cheap idea. I also was happy to give a candy this year. When I was a kid, I always wished I could do that...Need any other ideas? Lemme know. Michaella
Heart-and-Lollipop FlowersWith just a little TLC, colorful hearts flourish as the petals of a new flower variety --one with a lollipop center and stem.
1. Use card stock to make a half-heart template about 3 inches high and 1 1/4 inches wide. Fold a 12-by-3 1/2-inch piece of construction paper in half vertically, and trace four half-hearts along the fold.
2. Cut out hearts; unfold.
3. Stack hearts; punch a hole 1/4 inch up from bottom. Position petals to form a flower, making sure holes line up. Secure by applying glue around holes; let dry. Write name on a petal. Insert lollipop.
