Sweet!

Today's card is inspired by this one that I made back in November 2013...where I used Baker's twine and a kebab skewer to make a 'lollipop'! I thought I'd have another go, when I saw the 'thread' theme of this week's Less is More challenge, but this time made three smaller lollipops. I started by using one of my Nesties to cut some small circles from a snippet of card, coated them with some tacky glue, then covered them with Baker's twine...winding it round in a spiral, starting in the centre, then securing it to the back of the circle with some tape. I attached a piece of wooden kebab skewer to each 'lollipop', then tied another little piece of the twine around each of the sticks, then attached them to my card using 3D foam pads. I couldn't find a suitable sentiment in a large enough font, so made my own using a set by Paper Smooches that I was lucky enough to win a little while ago over at Pixie's Snippets Playground.
