Valentine Flowers...NOT what you think!
Sweet sentiments of colorful hearts flourish as the petals of a new flower. With a lollipop center twist!
1. Use card stock to make a half-heart template about 3 inches high and 1 1/4 inches wide. Fold a 12-by-3 1/2-inch piece of construction paper in half vertically, and trace four half-hearts along the fold.
2. Cut out hearts; unfold.
3. Stack hearts; punch a hole 1/4 inch up from bottom. Position petals to form a flower, making sure holes line up. Secure by applying glue around holes; let dry. Write name on a petal. Insert lollipop.
Thanks to MarthaStewart for the inspiration!
