I was so excited this year when my Mom asked me to make the ‘cake’ for my niece’s dance recital (usually it’s my Mom’s task)… I immediately began scouring the internet for ideas, and found these.
I did mine in lavender to match my niece’s costume. They went together pretty quickly… I got tired of tracing them so I traced about 10 on my cardstock, and then scanned it to my computer, and then printed out 2 more sheets directly on the cardstock (I was making 24).
Then I cut my tulle… the directions said to make them 5x10… the roll I bought at Michael’s was 6in so I just went with that… I also cut an extra piece of cardstock to 10 inches as a measuring guide to cut.
Unfortunately, at this point I got so engrossed in making them that I stopped taking pictures… they were a bit labor intensive… I also found it easier to tape the lollipop stick on BEFORE doing the tulle on the back, and I used single sided tape for the stick. One other point is the ribbon I found was lace w/ pearls, and it really didn’t want to stick… I think a standard ribbon would work much easier. You can also find ribbon usually in the scrapbook section that is sticky on the back side so check around for that.
They were a big hit, and my niece loved them!!
