Lollipop with a Tutorial!

Hi Everyone

It is the start of the new challenge over at Unicorn Challenge 


 The theme for this month is Stitching Real OR Faux (Not one of my favourite themes but we have a Stitcher on the DT and she chose this one lol!) She does some fabulous X Stitch if you would like to visit her blog HERE and leave her some comments she would love it. 

The iamge I used for my project is called Baby Words from Paper Nest Dolls

I have made one of my favourite types of cards for my DT project this time which is a Lollipop Card.  I have been asked several times how I make these so I am going to attempt to do step by step instructions for this post.  If I have missed anything out or you need to know anything else about how I made this then please feel free to email me at ljanners@hotmail.com or leave me a question in the comments and I will get back to you. I have never done a tutorial before so bear with me lol!

Step 1. I Cut out the image out using a Go Kreate circle die and then two larger circles one for layering and one for the reverse


                                                                                                                                                                                            






Step 2. I glued the frill onto both the front and back





 
 


 Step 3. I used red tape (double sided sticky tape) to attach the straw to one side.  I put some more on the top side ready to attach the back.  I also glued around the frill on both sides so that when they are sandwiched together they are secured with two layers of glue









Step 4. I pressed the back onto the front sandwiching the straw between both












Step 5.  I glued on the image.  If you have a message or info to go onto the back like baby's weight etc then print this info and cut out in a circle the same size as the image and glue on now






 

Step 6. I Added embellishments , bows, Roses etc




Step 7. My Lollipop is now finished!



I hope that you found this helpful in creating your own Lollipop Cards.  I love seeing the different ones around Blogland.
