I have always loved roses. My Mom wore rose scented perfume and I do as well. The scent is lovely and it reminds me of her. It’s been years since I made this easy rose craft but I thought it would be a fun thing for the boys to do this year for their teachers for Valentine’s Day.
Tissue Paper Lollipop Rose
What you need:
Small lollipops – we used Dum Dums
3 or 4 – squares of Pink or Red Tissue Paper (5″)
Green Craft Foam paper
Small rubber band or twist tie
Lay your tissue paper squares on top of each other and then fan them out so that the corners don’t match.
Place the lollipop in the center of the tissue paper and gather them around it.
Place a rubber band or twist tie around the lollipop stick and shape the paper around the lollipop to form the flower
Next cut your leaves from the green foam paper and cut a small hole in each. Push the leaves up the stem (lollipop stick) of the flower.
You can have your child write a message across the leaves before placing on the stick to personalize the lollipop flower.
