Digital Tuesday Challenge #14: Sweet Birthdays

This week on the Digital Tuesday Challenge I'm the hostess...and my challenge this week is SWEET BIRTHDAYS! The stipulation is to use at least one digital image and create something sweet with birthday's in mind, it could be a cupcake card or it could be a candy bar wrapper decorated in a birthday theme, let your imagination go WILD!

I decided I would do a cute lollipop birthday bouquet, this is a really simple and quick project with sooooo many possibilities! I decided on Have a Sweet Birthday for my theme and used Tootsie Pops (tropical flavored I think) for my lollipops (really I just loved the colors...pink and purple!). I purchased my flower pot at Hobby Lobby on sale for $1.50, put some florists foam in (I had on hand) and then started sticking my lolli's in it. I then added some curling ribbon and my topper and a little ribbon for a finishing touch...
This has so many sentiment possibilities:

  • How about for a teacher so she can "share" her bouquet with her students?
  • Great for a major birthday... you could put a topper in it that says 50 (or whatever age) SUCKS!
  • Also great for co-workers...inexpensive (mine is under $5, even with two bags of lollipops) and pretty to boot!
Thanks for joining me today and be sure to join in the Sweet Birthday fun...this weeks sponsor is MY GRAPHICO and they are giving away an entire digi stamp set to the lucky winner, so be sure to enter, I can't WAIT to see what you come up with!

Recipe:

  • Stamp: Digi Stamp by CC Designs Penguin

  • Other: Lollipops, flower pot, florist foam, curling ribbon, Copics, Skewer (for topper) and ribbon
