To make a few, you’ll need:

lollipop sticks

hot glue/glue gun


pinking shears

patriotic ribbons from The Ribbon Retreat

yummy dessert

To make each flag, simply cut about 3-4 inches in length of the ribbon of your choice. Place hot glue on end of the ribbon as well as a little dab on the lollipop stick. Wrap ribbon around the lollipop stick and carefully press the ribbon ends together. Trim with pinking shears once the hot glue has cooled down a bit.


Easy peasy and makes a huge statement when serving your delicious 4th of July desserts this year!
