(Sorry for the blurry photo, I tried multiple times, but this was the best I could get!)
The base of the holder is Pool Party, and the DSP is the fabulous Spice Cake -- love it!
This is the front of the card -- I made a rosette (sometimes called a "Lolly," I have NO idea why) from one of the pieces in the Spice Cake package.
Lollies are pretty easy to make; use a 1", 1-1/2" or 2" x 12 strip of DSP (depending on the size of the lolly you want), and score at every 1/4 inch (or 1/2" inch). Then fold on all the score lines, mountain fold, valley fold, over and under. The key is that at the end you have to make sure that a mountain and valley fold meet, or you get this weird...thing...and it makes it very difficult to get the lolly to lay down. Ask me how I know...
If you want to make a lot of lollies at once, take a 12x12 piece of DSP and score the whole thing, then cut it into strips.
Happy Birthday, Tracey!!
