Pages Reveal: Lollipop Bouquet

The Reveal
This week for Pages from the Heart, the DT was charged with designing an altered item using a handmade embellishment. Here is my creation:
Lollipop Bouquet

The Inspiration
I was browsing through Pinterest and I saw a 30 Sucks Lollipop gift from Sisters' Stuff blog that I thought was a cute idea. 
Pinterest Idea
It reminded me of the lollipop bouquet I made for my sister's wedding. She wanted all the bridesmaids to have indiviually wrapped lollipops instead of flowers, so I had to figure out how to make it. Here we are in our resplendant glory. 

Vic's wedding with lollipop bouquets
Her birthday is coming up, so I thought it might be nice to pay homage to her wedding by creating a lollipop centerpiece that doubles as a party favor. 

The Details
The guests can take a lollipop from the bouquet when they leave as a party favor.  

Party Favor
Each lollipop is individually wrapped with using cellophane, Scotch tape, a tag and curling ribbon. 
Wrapping each lollipop

For the base I used a Nabisco Wheat Thin Stix box, since I liked the tapered edges of the box. 

Decorating the base
I cut down the box and decorated it with patterned papers, die cuts, ribbon, punched shapes and pearls. 

Centerpiece Base

Thanks so much for stoppin' by,
