Deacon Flower Pots

Good Morning!  My son’s summer vacation has started.  His last day of preschool was Friday and I made these for his teachers.  He was so cute — when we were counting down the days of school, he said after his last day of school, he was going to get a lollipop.    These were so easy to make and so cute.

Aren’t those cute & fun?!  I used my heart punches to punch out the petals.  I selected various Stampin’ Up designer papers that have been sitting unused for too long — keeping mainly with a pink & brown theme.  Each “flower” has three small hearts as the center and 4 larger for the main petals.  I punched a hole in each heart with my Crop-a-dile and added them to the stem of the lollipop.  Under each flower is a pipe cleaner wrapped around to keep the flower petals from falling down.  Each pot has a circular Styrofoam florist insert.  I just added in some white shred around the flowers.  Deacon’s school sign it was PERFECT for a little card.  I took wooden skewers and cut them down, used Scor-tape to fasten it to the base, and then added lots of dimensionals to Deacon to get him in place over the skewer.  A bit of ribbon to dress up the pot and it was done.  Very cute and budget friendly!
