Jotted Heart Flowers

I made this sucker flower for my daughter to give as Valentine treats at daycare.  I saw a Martha Stewart flower/treat tutorial and knew it would be just right with my new Verve die!!!  I absolutely love my Jotted Heart die.  I know if I play with my other Verve dies, I will love them just as much.

For my flower, I die cut 4 hearts, stacked them and used my crop-a-dile to punch a hole in the bottom.  I separated them and inked the edges and then threaded them onto my Tootsie Roll Pop.  Too bad I had it upside down in my photo (what a goober I am)!  I used mini glue dots to keep my petals spaced appropriately and then tied a rose ribbon around the sucker stick, adhering it with a bit of scor-tape!  I finished it off with an SU tag that I stamped with the heart trio and sentiment from my Verve set called Love Notes.  Finally, I printed my recipients name on the tag and glue dotted it down!

Thanks for stopping by!

This is such an awesome way to use that die. I haven't ordered it yet, but I think I might have to - this would be a perfect easy gift for the mister! (He loves tootsie pops!) Thanks for sharing!
