My three years old twin granddaughters are attending pre-school three days/ week. I wanted to make something easy and pretty for the girls to take to their teachers on Valentine’s Day. The answer came to me in a Google Images search, a lollipop bouquet.



Lollipop Flower Bouquet
The Lollipop flower is very easy and fast to assemble. I used 3 mini pink petals cupcake liners, a lollipop, and green cardstock for the leaf. To assemble, I folded 2 of the cupcake liners in half and put them on the lollipop. I opened up the 3rd liner fully and slip it on to look like a full bloom flower, then added the personalized cardstock leaf last.



For my family, I made Hershey’s Kisses Flowers.



I used textured cardstock paper for the flowers and leaves, unfortunately doesn’t show well on the pictures. Because the Valentine’s Hershey’s Kisses comes in 3 different colors, I made 3 different color flowers, one to match each Hershey’s kiss. I add a personalized tag and pack them in a Valentine’s themed bag. This flower idea comes from my elementary school days.



Happy Valentine's Day!

How incredibly edibly cute! I rocked you. Your attention to detail is awesome. And adding the little candy pieces just fits the bill for these. I am sure your whole entire family and friends will be in wonderland at Valentine's.

They could probably be good for other holidays as well. Weddings come to mind, as does Christmas. Even halloween in spooky colors. I think they could work good as place cards for dinner parties. With just a single flower tucked into the napkin holder. Just ideas. These really look great!

Thank you for the compliments. The lollipop flowers are very cute. I thought about using red petals cupcake liners, but my preference for pink is well known in the family  Smiley
Stillatthetop, the idea came to me from my elementary school days when we used to make them for Mother’s Day.
The picture doesn’t really show the textured cardstock, but it gives the flowers a textured look to the petals and leaves.
