Today we would like to share with you a wonderful paper lollipop card baby wand. This is a wonderful project for a baby shower gift or those first few baby birthdays. Its great for a boy or girl and can be made in any color for any theme. So if you are not doing traditional baby you can mix and match the paper to create your own trendy baby theme. CCB Crew Member Linda Skotheim created this adorable wand card with the help of her favorite princess, her daughter. These two make quite the team. So glad they teamed up again for this great project.
My little princess and I loved making this fun little lollipop wand card. They are just so fun to do. Its the perfect accent to put into a flower gift, wrap into a baby shower gift or use as treats for a party. It’s really a fun way to add color and decor to a baby shower. You can also use them as birth announcements you can hand out to announce the little one.
Canvas Corp offers baby lines for both boys and girls with a wide range of basic papers and a few with great sayings and artwork you can add. If you are looking for a more distressed look, mist them with one of the neutral color mists and they will age instantly. The little boy is all blues and browns, while the little girl is pinks and blacks. Add accent colors such as yellow, grey, green and red to expand the color palette. The Canvas Corp Mix and Match Pads are perfect for making a whole collection of wands, here is the version for boys – Snips ‘n Snails
and girls – Sugar ‘n Spice
Tools Used: Hot glue gun; Folding board
I start out by cutting the paper into two 6×12 strips and folding them on every 1/2″ (the long side)
The cardstock weight paper is great for making pinwheels. Use clothespins to hold them in place while gluing.
I then use glimmer mist (pink) and hickory smoke distress ink to color the hug snug that I wrap around the paper straw.. I then fold the base and use hot glue in the middle (go keep it togther).
Break the project down into smaller steps, teaching smaller hands techniques along the way, they will remember what you teach them forever.
I then added the lovely words (just cut them out).. and as you see I got my little princess making one of her own..
I love how the color flowers just flow… They always turn out amazing..
Finally I glue it all down, I use the small cards on the back to write notes in.. That is the most fun thing with clothespins, they give you so many ways to add your own personal sentiments ..
How great was this project? We could make these wands for every occasion and in every color or theme. These are such a great gift for anyone. If you are not in the market for baby projects, why not create a similar wand for your next DIY princess party, birthday party or fun event. Simply pull papers, ribbons and embellishments to match. You can even cut pieces from purchased party supplies to add a handmade touch to a quick and simple party.
