A few years ago, I made tootsie pop flowers. Get the Valentine tootsie pops in the pink and red wrappers. Use pink, white or red tissue paper to make flowers. Cut the tissue paper into approx. 8" squares and fold in half twice to get a smaller square. Then, round off the unfolded edges to make petals. Snip a very tiny tip of the folded center. Open up the tissue and you have a four petal flower shape with a little hole in the center. Layer about four or more of these, altering the petals a bit so they aren't all lined up (you can also use multiple colors for one flower). Stick the tootsie pop stick in the hole and gather the tissue around the pop for the flower. Use green florist tape (or scotch tape) to wrap around the base of the flower and stick to secure. I then used an index card size or smaller piece of cartstock to stamp a greeting. Punch two round holes about an inch apart on the side of the card and insert the tootsie pop stick.
