Craft Project - Lollipop Flowers

Total Time 1 hour Ages all-ages
There is something irresistibly simple and lovely about this card, and your sweetheart is sure to be a sucker for the candy treat it hides.

  • Red and green construction paper or card stock
  • Scissors
  • Lollipops
  • Glue stick




  1. From red construction paper, cut out a heart that's just larger than the lollipop candy and glue it to the wrapper.

  2. For the leaves, fold the green paper in half and cut out a leaf shape, leaving the two sides attached at the seam.

  3. Unfold the double leaf shape, coat the entire inside surface with glue, and fold it back over the lollipop stem, pressing to secure.
