Lollypop Party Table Runner

I am so happy to be sharing another simple, inexpensive idea for your party planning. This is a simple, but festive table runner that you can adapt to your theme. Of course, my theme this month is lollipops, and I have made mine with the Provo Craft Cricut Accent Essentials cartridge, and Design Studio. I cut a couple of sheets of swirls of each color, and have been using them for all of my projects. It's so nice to have them ready to add to everything!
Here is my table runner, made from a roll of kitchen freezer paper!! So easy, durable, yet inexpensive and disposable, if you want. Just cut it to the lenght of your table, and add decorations to each end. So easy!!
Freezer papers makes perfect place mats, too.
Let's begin!
I started by cutting 1" strips of the striped paper and adhered them to the edge of my runner. Then I placed my lollipops so that I could spell out "Celebrate", adhered them with paper glue, and added strips of cardstock for sticks. Next I spiced it up with ready cut hologram letters to spell out my message, stuck on rhinestones, and then that darling pompom trim. VOILA!! When I'm preparing for a party, I want it to be WOW, without hours of work, or tons of money. (There's a sneak peek for Wednesday's Be Inspired Challenge in there~hint, hint!!) I really hope you like it, and will join us in the Cuttlebug Challenge Birthday Party Palooza.
I'll be back soon with more crafting goodies!
Happy crafting ~
