Technique Tuesday – Lollipop Card

It is Tuesday and so I’m sharing a fabulous technique with you!!! This week it is adorable Lollipop Card!!! I love the colors and playfulness this card offers! Super fabulous!

Lollipop Card, www.LaurasStampPad.comI love how cute this lollipop is and it is fairly simple. I only say that because the wrapping of the Baker’s Twine around and around and around…..and around seems to go on forever! (And you all know me and my lack of patience 😉 )

Supplies Needed: Jumbo Sticky Rounds, Baker’s Twine, Cardstock, and Chevron Ribbon

Starting on the outside of the Jumbo Sticky Round, place your Baker’s Twine with the tail hanging off a bit (it will go to the back to hold the end in place). Keep laying the twine down in a circle moving closer and closer to the center. Around and Around and Around AND AROUND! In the center, you will cut it off and then smoosh the end into the center. Then peel the round off and push the end (beginning piece) to the back and place it on your card! I used cardstock for the stick but you could always use a popsicle stick or dowel  rod but that might not go in the mail as easy! I create the cute bow with the Chevron Ribbon to place at the base of the lollipop! The stitch marks around the edge of the card add a little design and texture without adding more layers or taking away from the lollipop! The colors used was Island Indigo, Whisper White, and Crumb Cake! Also, while this does use lots of Baker’s Twine, it is only $0.0038 per inch so you don’t have to feel bad! 🙂 I hope you enjoyed this technique and try it out!

Happy Stampin’
