Hearts A Flutter Valentine Treat Pops

Hey Stampers !!

My son may only be 2, but it feels like hes already in school sometimes ... I needed to create TWO different bunches of Valentines treats for play groups he is in !! Hahaha. I already showed you the Dinoroar Valentines I did for one group, and today I am showing you the super fun treat pops I made !! I got this idea from Dawn Griffith over at Dawn's Stamping Thoughts and thought they were SUPER cute so I would make some too !! Take a look !!


Aren't they just too sweet ?? And they were really fun to make too. First, I used my FAVORITE laser cut doily hearts from the More Amore DSP (they are now all gone ... sniff sniff haha) and cut them all apart. The 3rd smallest heart from the Hearts Collection Framelits fit inside this doily perfectly, so I die cut a bunch of those with my Big Shot and the other patterns from the More Amore DSP. Then my hearts were done !! I used Blow Pops for my treats, so I had to cover them ! I took just regular white tissue paper (2 or 3 sheets so you couldn't see through it very well) in a rough 7" square, and stamped the hearts heart stamp from the Hearts a Flutter stamp set all over it in Real Red ink. Then I wrapped the top of the lollipop in that tissue paper, and tied it with the Pool Party Bakers Twine. Next was time to make my little tags !

I took scraps of Whisper White cardstock and stamped the open heart stamp, also from Hearts a Flutter, in Pool Party ink. Then in the middle of the heart I stamped the Love stamp from the Fabulous Phrases stamp set in Primrose Petals ink. I then die cut this out with this fun shape from the Heart a Flutter Framelits. I stamped the back of the take with the "from" stamp (also from Fabulous Phrases) i real Red ink, and write my sons name underneath. The kids need to know who their fun treat is from, right ?? I then punched a hole in the top with my 1/16" Handheld Circle Punch, and tied my tag to the lollipop with more Pool Party Bakers Twine. A couple of Glue Dots on the back of the treat attached it to the DSP hearts really well ... I just love them !! Here is a close up of one by itself.


I can't wait for Jackson to hand out these adorable valentines to his little friends on Friday! I think they turned out great ! I hope you do too. Thanks a lot for stopping by today and Happy Stamping !!
