I mentioned the other day when I shared my Valentine’s Day Hershey Kiss Mice that I’m coping with my post Christmas blues by throwing myself into all things pink for Valentine’s Day! The same day I sat down to make the mice I also made these cute little Tissue Paper Flower Lollipops-aren’t they such a pretty Valentine’s Day craft? These follow the same premise as my Tissue Paper Flower Tutorial with a few special steps to incorporate a lollipop in the center!
- ~7 layers of tissue paper cut into a 4 by 5″ piece
- hole punch
- lollipops-I used dum-dums, you’ll need to increase your tissue paper size for larger lollipops
- floral tape
- Fold the tissue paper accordion style, about 1/2″ thick
- Trim the ends of the folded paper in either a curve or point, depending on final look desired
- Find a fold near the middle and punch a hole in the center for the lollipop stick
- Insert the lollipop stick and staple the folded paper close to the base of the lollipop to secure folds
- Begin carefully separating the layers of tissue paper to create your flower petals-be gentle so paper doesn’t rip
- Wrap lollipop stick in floral tape to finish off the stem
I think these are so pretty and they are easy enough for kids to make once you show them how. My three boys of course had no interest in making them but they gladly swiped lollipops off my table while I was shooting that video!
Who would you gift these to?
