Valentine, Snowman & Lollipop Fun

Some of you are applying sunscreen and we have still have snow in Ohio, a little warmer today but not out of the woods yet. If you are missing it, here's a Valentine Snowman!

Made from a cardstock door knob hanger, clear plastic, pop squares, and confetti to make a version of a shaker card. The face was made with a permanent marker and allowed to dry well.
I used Close to My Heart Cranberry ink but you could use blues, pinks or even black, depending on what you want.
If you want it more male oriented change your insides. Candy Cinnamon hearts would also be cute. Great for a card front, a treat itself, or add a ribbon for a tag and add to a gift. Add sequins, marker in or add real buttons to his tummy if you like.
The lollipop holder was cut from a sizzix die and it has 3 pieces to the flower. A hole in the center allows the stick of the lollipop to fit in and the cello wrapping helps secure it.
I used pop dots to seperate the layers. You could add green leaves, a ribbon, tag or other. If you don't have a die cut machine, cut your own flower or heart pieces.
