Lollipop bouquet...

It's not too late to create a quick and easy Halloween gift for those special people in your life! How about a Lollipop Bouquet? I made this one with Dream Street's new Superstition line of chipboard, papers and rub ons.I found a box at the craft store and covered with paper, added chipboard around the top of the box and a "trick or treat" rub on. Next, I inserted some floral foam down into the box (you can glue it in with a hot glue gun) and covered the top with some webbing. Lastly, I poked the lollipops into the foam. You can add little signs as I did here by adhering little chipboard sayings to bamboo skewers.
To create the lollipop creatures:
1. Spider - Cut a circle from the patterned paper about 2 1/2 inches around. Distress edges. Punch 2 small circles in the lower body of the spider to slide lollipop through. Add chipboard photo corners for legs with glue dots adhered to the back of the body. Lastly, punch hole in the chipboard tag and tie it onto the lollipop with a bit of twine.
2. Ghost - Cut a ghost shape from patterned paper. Punch 2 small circles from black paper for the eyes. Punch 2 small holes near bottom of ghost to insert the lollipop stick. Cut "beware" strip from patterned paper and attach to bottom of ghost. Add chipboard piece to ghost.
You can just poke these little guys into the foam and they are a cute addition. Or you can make the lollipop creatures just how they are to hand out to the children at school!
