I am SO excited! This is my first blog hop to participate in. My team members, “The Glitter Queens,” invited me. This will be a 3 day blog hop so be sure to stop by tomorrow and Wednesday to see what special items we’ve chosen for you.

I love, love, love, to make Lollies or Rosettes. This past Christmas I made a lot of them. I added ribbon and hung them on gifts (see photo above), I did a class for them, and I handed them out and decorated my tree with them. Everyone loved them!

Unfortunately, I only have a few left and I didn’t take pictures of the ones I gave away.

They don’t all have to be round!  (As I placed this on the red background to take a picture today, I thought, “What a pretty card this would make.”)

Also this past Christmas I made a bunch of Post-It note holders out of chip board and coasters. I made so many in fact, that I still have quite a stash of them. The one above is my very first one. I cut the chip board and sanded and inked the edges. It is quite a lot of work unless you are only going to do one or two. I made quite a few this way until my coasters arrived!

The coaster Post-It note holders were easier since they were already cut. This shows the inside. The 3×3″ Post-It notes work great.

The two above aren’t decorated with Lollies but are just as pretty.

It is so much fun trying different patterns of paper. Also, decorating the tops with different embelishments.

This is a good way to use up some of that retired DSP you have. I used the Stampin’ Up! Rosette bigz XL die to make my Lollies but you can also get the same affect with the score board. Just score every 1/4″. I used 2 strips about 11 1/2″ long and 2″ wide to make 1 Lolly for my Post-It note covers.

So are you ready to see what the next person on the blog hop has in store for you? Just click the “Next” button below.
