I decided I wanted to make some Halloween lollies which is a great paper craft.
I started by trimming my paper with the paper trimmer (widths vary depending on how big you want your lolly to be). Then, also using the paper trimmer, score the paper every half inch with the bone folder.
The paper trimmer has an indented grid on it so scoring the paper is a breeze!
Finally accordion fold all of your pieces of paper (you will need 4 pieces per lolly).
Glue the four pieces of paper together end-to-end to make a big circle.
Gently push the paper down to form the lolly and glue it together to stay put.
Use the Herma Dotto adhesive on a round piece of paper and stick it on the center of the lolly.
Now to decorate the lolly!
I stamped bunting onto some paper then used the precision scissors to cut them out.
Apply a large 3-D dot to the back of each piece of bunting and put them on the lolly.
I was itching to use some of the punches I received so I used them on another lolly.
I used the scallop punch on some purple Halloween paper.
After trimming, scoring, and adhering some paper to make another lolly, I used the Swiss cheese border punch around the edge of the paper.
Note: I think by completing all of the steps to make the lolly before punching it out is the easiest process.
Trying to score and fold the paper after it has been punched would be problematic.
Incidently, one tail end of the bone folder works great for applying rub ons!
I made several lollies of varying widths and decorated them with paper, buttons, rub ons, etc.
I wanted the lollies to say something, so I used three of them to spell out BOO!
I then attached all of the lollies to 1/4″ dowel rods.
Now for what we’re putting the lollies in!
I took an unfinished wood plaque and painted the edges with black glitter and covered the top with scrapbook paper.
I used an unused makeup brush holder to hold the lollies. I wrapped the top of each piece of the holder with washi tape.
To make sure my lollies would stand up nice and straight, I devised a way to manipulate them with the washi tape.
Take two pieces of tape, one longer than the other, and place them sticky side to sticky side.
Fold the tape in half and cut a small X in the center.
Insert the tape into the makeup brush holder with the shorter piece of tape on top.
Press the sticky ends against the walls of the container.
Now we can put the lollies through the X!
I trimmed the dowels to varying lengths the lollies wouldn’t overlap.
What an absolutely stunning display!!! You just inspired me to drag out all those punches I have sitting around and use those for fun lollies! I was going to order die cuts to make those...now I don't have too:-)
