Candy Heart and Paper Flowers Revisited

Tuesday, February 14, 2012

I wrote about candy hearts and paper flowers once when I first started blogging, but this year, I am officially making yet another new tradition.  As kids, we used to watch a movie called Raggedy Ann and Andy: A Musical Adventure. I don't know if any of you remember it but it was definitely one of my favorites. One of the songs in the movie was Called Candy Hearts and Paper Flowers and some of the lyrics went:

Candy hearts and paper flowers
Sunshine days when skies are blue.
Rhymes and songs we sing for hours.
Words to say I love you true.

Times get bad and then I worry,
how I'll ever see it through.
But candy hearts and paper flowers,
will always keep me close to you.

Here is a video clip of the song:

I always loved that song and me and my mom used to sing it together. So this year, I am giving candy hearts and paper flowers to Zee and making it a tradition and a show of love.  I've seen some great inspiration on Pinterest and here is what I came up with:

I used a flower tutorial from Whimsical World of Laura Bird and changed it up a little.  I filled my jar with candy hearts and embellished my mason jar with lace and a paper heart.

I saw some paper flowers on Pinterest that used Pixy Sticks as stems and thought that would be perfect as my daughter loooves Pixy Sticks.

...and voila!

Candy Hearts and Paper Flowers! ...she told me they were the most beautiful flowers she had ever seen :)
