Splashin Fun

I want to thank all of you who participated in my Birthday Blog Candy, especially all my new followers...I am almost at 200!!!!I have met so many blogger friends in the past two years:) Thanks for your words of encouragement and for visiting often. 

I also want to thank all of you who participated in our Happy Birthday challenge at Lexi's Creations.There were so many beautiful entries. I am glad that I did not have to choose a winner!

Our challenge for the next two weeks will be At the Beach.  I chose to use the image: Splashin Fun Ollie Duck.
This is a lollipop holder!! 
What child,or adult, wouldn't love a lollipop after swimming???
Here is the side view.
Couldn't make just one!!

These lollipop holders were so easy to make and I had fun coloring the delightful images.I honestly don't remember where I got the idea from. I did alter the original. I will try and explain how to make one.
Lollipop Holder
cut a piece of CS 8 1/2 inches long and 2 1/4 inches wide
fold this rectangle in half and score
turn the rectangle horizontal
from the left side, score  at 2 inches
from the right side score at 2 1/2 inches
now fold the CS into a triangle (look at second picture)
You will need to punch a hole on the fold so that the lollipop will poke through
decorate the front with your image or sentiment

I hope that this makes sense to you. If not, please leave me a comment and I will try and help you.

Materials used:
CS: Close To My Heart
Image: Lexi's Creations
Ribbon: Martha Stewart
Colored with Copic Markers
Glossy Accents used on the goggles
