My son got to choose his Valentine Candy this year. And out of all the choices on the shelf he chose the dum-dum pops. So above are some Valentine ideas to make with them. They're very quick and easy for kids or adults to make. Directions Below.
Kimono Valentine Directions
Cut a piece of origami paper to 6" by 3". Fold in half. When folded, cut out two rectangles on each side to form the shape of the body (refer to picture). Punch a hole on the center of the fold. Put the lollipop inside the hole. With Double stick tape, tape inside closed at the bottom of the kimono. Tie ribbon around the waist. Done! *Optional, write a message in the inside of the kimono.
Umbrella Valentine Directions
Using a doily with a 3" diameter, make a cut to the center. Fold over to make a cone shape and glue together. Bend the bottom of the dum-dum to look like the hook of an umbrella. Glue the top of the dum-dum to the inside of the cone. Done! *Optional, write a message on the inside or outside of the doily.
