From Lollipop to Valentine Card

designed by Ana Araujo
Today’s project was inspired by a pin Ana saw on Pinterest from HomadeGinger.com where she spray-painted candy hearts to make framed artwork and earrings. Ana thought, “I wonder if this will work with Valentine Lollipops?” So, here is Ana’s experience.

  11. Glue the feathered end of the lollipop stick so it looks like it is going through the heart
  12. Glue the point of the arrow as it is coming out of the heart
  13. Edge the card with gold paint pen
  14. Write your love note or Happy Valentine’s Day inside the card
Note:
The lollipop became sticky, so you need to spray paint in as soon as you take it out of the warper. It has been raining nonstop here in Northern California, so the moisture in the air and maybe the cause of that. But once it was sprayed it solved that problem. You could also make a pin by glue a pin back on the heart (but I would spay paint that side, too)
