The Last Challenge ...

The last Lollishop "Spring" design team challenge ... and away we go ....

Above is the package put together by Sadie Lou ... one of the sweetest "lollipops" ever! Filled with bits and bobs to get the creative juices flowin' .... My favorite is the little velvet flower, very sweet indeed.

As you can see, my package contained a vintage birthday card ... so I already had a theme pretty much already decided upon, but what would the "creations" be? I was torn between a candy filled party favor or a party hat .... and since I just did a favor type project {remember this?}I went with the party hat idea ...

I made these chicken wire crowns a few years back ... I pulled them out for a bit of inspiration for my party tiara.

Some extra goodies I gathered for the project .... chicken wire, vintage pom-pom trim, ruffles fabric, and tulle ... plus the staples ... glitter and glue

Ta-da ... a birthday tiara fit for the Birthday princes {or queen!}



Well, that's a wrap for all of my design challenges ... I'm glad I took it on, I had a lot of fun creating with my surprise kits each month ... I'm going to miss receiving the goodies in the mail!

Make sure to check out all of this month's designs ... and ... welcome the new group of "Lolli" designers who are next up at bat !!

Happy creating girls!
