Valentine Decoration

I got this idea from some SUPER talented ladies on a scrapbooking message board I go to, and decided to make one for Adrian's preschool teacher. Her classroom is all decked out in Valentine stuff!

I got the lollipop sticks ($2 for 50) and the mug ($1) at Michaels, and I also got a small cube of that green floral foam stuff, it was like $1.29. I cut the cube into quaters and put a chunk down in the cup, and covered it with the strips of paper. I cut a piece of scrap pink paper into strips and then used this to make it all wavy (side note - I should have used that first and then cut it into strips, but it still worked!). The die cut shapes are the same on both sides and there is foam tape between the layers so the lollipop sticks fit.

The owl and the swirly heart is from the Storybook cartridge, and the rest is from the Doodlecharms cartridge.
