Cute Valentines Day Craft!

  • One piece of tissue paper 16" square or four 4" square pieces of tissue paper
  • Dum Dum lollipop
  • Floral tape

1) Cut out four flower shapes from tissue paper and stack them on top of each other.

2) Push the end of a lollipop stick through the center of the flower shapes going through all four layers of tissue. Slide the flowers all the way up the stick to the lollipop and adjust the flower petals so they look nice.

Learn to wrap floral tape around flower stems3) Using floral tape, wrap the tape around the underside of the flower where the tissue and lollipop come together. Wrap the tape 2 or 3 times around this spot then continue to wrap the tape down the length of the stick and back up again ending with an additional two wraps around where you started. When using floral tape, you need to stretch it slightly as you wrap for it to adhere properly. At this point, you will still be able to adjust the inner three layers of tissue but do not try to move the layer with the tape on it as it will rip the tissue.
