Lollipop invitations (motivated by a previous feature on this blog) were handmade using colorful scrapbook paper cut into large circles. We printed party details onto the white card stock which was also cut into a circle and glued each circle together with a lollipop stick in between. A sassy picture reflecting the birthday girl’s true joie de vive was glued to the back side and pink ribbon was tied to the stick. These sweet treats are a keepsake for all of MerryBelle’s beloved party guests.
These whimsical bouquets of giant lollipops were made with rolled up pool noodles (a find at the dollar store) hot glued into the shape. For the sticks, we cut a tiny hole into the noodle and inserted a wooden dowel covered in white duct tape. Then we wrapped the lollipops in cellophane which was tied with coordinating ribbon. The lollipops were held in place in glass vases with a mountain of gumballs. Ordinary balls were also wrapped to look like giant pieces of hard candy. The personalized sign was made from matte board that was already the perfect shade of pink, the same scrapbook paper from the invitation, and white sketch paper.
Colorful cardstock molded into cones and hot glued in place provided guests with single servings of their favorite treats--from Sugar Babies and Circus Peanuts to caramel corn and animal crackers.
