Patriotic Lollies

Wow!  It has been over six months since my last post!  It certainly isn't because I haven't made anything - I will try to be better at this.

Recently I made these fun patriotic lollies
as a centerpiece for a themed dinner. 
There are three different sizes.  They are 12, 8 or 6 inches across.  I used an old Dollar Tree paper pack that I had in my stash.  The stickers are K&Co and they were on clearance at AC Moore.  I used Martha's score board to score each one at 1/2 inch increments.  I used a hot glue to adhere everything, it is a really strong hold!    
My brother and his family have a big party each year for the 4th of July, so I am going to bring these to the party!  You can see in the mirror that each one is two sided.  I used a different paper on the front and the back. 
I found the container for $3.99 at Ross.  I cut up a styrofoam block and filled the container.  I added the kraft crinkle cut shred after I had put all the lollies in the styrofoam.
I hope you have fabulous plans for this patriotic weekend~
Have a great 4th of July!
