I Love You

Hello! Welcome to my blog! Today is my day to post over at Joy's Life DT! This week we are making projects using Joy's gorgeous stamp set Joyful Hearts. These hearts are simple beautiful! And they ink up so nicely! I decided to make a small candy bouquet for my son's girlfriend for Valentine's Day...This is just one of her presents, and I couldn't let him just give her PLAIN candy! Oh the horrors!! SO I dressed them up a bit....

1st I stamped the sticks with the "I Love You" stamp from this was a little tricky, but I went ahead and used one of my FAVORITE crafting finger! :) I put a couple of glue dots on my index finger and attached the stamp, inked it up and stamped the stick. I felt I had more control and I could "roll" my finger to try and get the full stamped image! Then I stamped one of the gorgeous hearts onto pink cardstock, cut them out and adhered them to the front of the sucker.

Here is the finished "bouquet"...

I used a small glass baby food jar, wrapped some paper around it and some ribbon. Added some marbles inside for weight and inserted the lollipops. I cut out one more heart for the front and added a purple "A" (her favorite color) and I was done!

Simple but cute! :) Just the way I like it!!

Thanks for stopping by and come back soon! :) Be sure to check out the DT Blog for tons of more inspiration everyday! :)

Until next time... ♥ Laura ♥
