Hello there! It's Christine over at Pure Joy Events, here to share the lollipop flower tutorial from my Gingham Easter Party. When Bird asked me to do a guest post, of course I jumped at the opportunity.  

These lollipop flowers are super simple to make, and could serve as darling favors for baby showers and children's birthday parties. Here's what you'll need:

* floral craft punch (I'm using Martha Stewart's embossed pop-up daisy punch)
* hole puncher (Martha's screw punch works really well)
* tissue paper
* lollipops
* green floral stryofoam block (mine is 4"W x 4"D x 2"H)
* green gingham scrapbook paper
* white glue



Step 1: Fold a sheet of tissue paper to create two layers, then use the floral punch to cut out the petals. I used different shades of pink tissue paper to add color and dimension.

Step 2: Place two to four petals on top of each other and punch a hole in the center.

Step 3: Thread the petals through the lollipop stick.

Step 4: Cut out leaves from the gingham paper, and glue them around the lollipop stick.

Step 5: To make the stand for the lollipop flowers, cut out four 4"W x 4"D x 2 3/4"H rectangular pieces from the gingham paper, then create blades of the grass by making some triangular cuts along the top. Use a pencil to curl the grass. Lastly, glue the paper to the sides of the floral block.

It's been a pleasure sharing my tutorial with everyone on Bird's Party today. To see more pictures and details from my Gingham Easter Party, visit Pure Joy Events blog.
