When I held a stall at my son's school fair on Saturday, I wanted to sell a few handcrafted items as well as telling everyone about the fabulousness of Stampin' Up products! One of the things I came up with was this strawberry lollipop:
Just LOOK at it! I got so excited about these! My daughter did point out that she had not previously seen a striped or a floral strawberry, forcing me to deliver a lecture about artistic licence. She drifted off halfway through my monologue but the cat seemed interested...
These strawberries contain a lollipop but wouldn't it be lovely to pop a strawberry truffle inside? Instead of a lolly stick poking out, you could just tie the little box with ribbon. Perfect for a dinner party or as a little thank you!
I used this template by Sherrie Brickey, which I adapted to make my strawberries, and used the 5 petal punch with a hole punched in the centre for leaves. A piece of Always Artichoke 1/4" grosgrain ribbon gave a finishing touch.
Thank you for dropping in to visit me today.
I'll be back tomorrow with a coordinated gift set.
Hope to see you then!
