GREAT QUICK LITTLE "CANDLE POPS" GIFT

Good evening, all.  Sorry to be so late with something to share, but I've had a busy day today.

A week or so ago, I was looking through some of the craft videos on YouTube and ran across what I thought was such a cute idea.  I was thinking also what a nice little something to make and give on the spur of a moment or a whim, or if you need a lot of little shower or bridal favors.

These are little candle lollipops.  I'm calling them "candle-pops" (original, right?):



I think I'm even going to make these into cute little sunflowers with leaves and stick them into those tiny little clay pots.  What do you think of that idea?

This are made of the little votive candles that come in the plastic containers, not the metal ones; pop a lollipop stick on the back, add a ribbon and a little tag (of course, I used my expression for the tag and the words), and "bingo" -- a great little gift!

Aren't they adorable?

While I'm here, please let me remind you to show some love to Flowerdisco by getting your projects entered into the showcase before 8 p.m. (CT) on this Friday.  All the fairies, and I'm sure the viewing audience too, are so looking forward to seeing your projects.

Well, that's all for now.  Have a great rest of your evening, and...

I'll be seeing you!

I think they are just too adorable Audrey.

And no, it's sad, but I am not creative (will I have made a few things on my own, Alex's dragon card, my Dallas cowboys explosion box that has been the extent of my creativity. I can "copy" someone else's work, but I have a real hard time thinking of something ALL on my own. I so enjoy it when I see you have left me a post. Thank you my friend.

They are cute, but all of your things are. I like the idea of turning them into sunflowers, that would be really cute.
These are good idea to do a bouquet for a hostess gift.

I've seen these before. But yours are far more lovely! They are on my list "to do" but like you said, they are more trinkety type things that would be perfect for a shower. Now which one of my friends can I marry off so I can try these??? LOL! Thank you so much for sharing your take on it. I love them!
