This was one of the 3-d projects everyone made at my "A Little Bit of Red" class.
Recipe: Stamps: None; Paper: Bashful Blue & Real Red cardstock; Ink: None; Accessories: Big Shot Flower Folds die, 1/8" real red taffeta ribbon, corduroy buttons, 1/8" circle punch, tootsie roll pop, dimensionals.
1. Cut two large and two small flowers from the Sizzix Flower Fold die. Glue one small and one large flower together, now you have two sets. Put dimensionals on the back of each flower set and stick the two flowers together on the bottom of the tootsie-pop stick. (The stick will be between your flowers). Apply the buttons on your flowers with glue dots, or dimensionals. Set aside.
2. Score a 6 x 6 piece of cardstock at 2" on all four sides. Score diagonally from each of the four corners to the spot where the first score line intersects. Fold each diagonal on the score line toward the center of the flower pot.
3. Punch a hole thru each diagonal at edge and feed ribbon thru each hole. Insert the tootsie-pop (pop side in flower pot), tighten the ribbon and make into a bow. Put little candies like kisses or mints in each pocket to help stabilize the tootsie-pop.
It is very easy and once you make one, you will want to make them over and over.
