Lollipop Flower Paper Craft

candy flower paper craftContributed by Leanne Guenther

This is a simple paper craft that will hold a piece of candy -- you can make a whole bouquet in a vase for a Valentine's dinner or you can hand out single blooms to good friends.

You can use cardstock or a heavier paper to make the petals (just trace the template) but, in my opinion, construction paper works best for children.  I find cardstock is too difficult for young kids to cut out and scrapbooking paper is expensive so if (when!) they mess up and waste, it's harder to be loving and patient with them, hehe.  Having said that, Valentine's scrapbooking paper looks very nice if an adult or teenager is making these.


Directions - three dimensional craft:

fold and cut flower

Advice on template to choose.  Full flower requires no folding... easy but not so fun.  The heart is for young kids who don't yet know how to make construction paper hearts.  This gives them a bit of guidance but still lets them fold coloured paper to make their project.
