Every year Frannie and I make these lollipop flowers. We use a heart-shaped paper punch with a scalloped edge and punch out five hearts for each one. Fold each heart in half (down the center) and punch a 1/8" hole near the bottom. Insert a Dum-Dums lollipop into the hole of each petal, push up as far as they will go, and add a dab of glue to secure. Finally, cut out a leaf shape, make a fold down the center and punch a hole, add a "To" and "From" on the back of the leaf, insert the pop, and voila!, they're ready to go. Frannie loves to deliver them to her class in a basket, so I place a styrofoam square in the bottom and put the lollipop flowers in all around to cover the base. It really makes a "cute" presentation, and the lollipops are held snug and secure.

My boy Lollipop, you made my heart go giddy up.
You are as sweet as candy, you're my sugar dandy.
Ha, ho my boy Lollipop,
Never ever leave me,
Because it would grieve me,
My heart told me so,
I love ya, I love ya, I love ya so,
That I want ya to know,
I need ya, I need ya, I need ya so,
And I'll never let you go,
My boy Lollipop,
You make my heart go giddy up,
You set my world on fire, you are my one desire,
My boy Lollipop, my boy Lollipop.
