Paper Lollipop Ornament TUTORIAL

 Learn how to make a super easy Paper Lollipop Ornament! So as requested, here’s a quick tutorial for my Lollipop Ornaments.
  • two 1.5″x12″ strips of double sided pattern paper (this will make a 3″ diameter lollipop)
  • two 2″ circles of coordinating paper
  • button(s)
  • 6″ hemp or ribbon (to hang it with)
  • double sided adhesive
  • hot glue gun
Take one strip of 1.5″x12″ paper and fold over about 1/2″.
Flip over and fold again 1/2″ so that your paper starts looking like an accordion.
Fold both strips of paper like this.
Then place the end of one accordion strip onto the end of the other strip. Overlapping one or two folds. Use your double sided adhesive to hold in place. I suppose you could use your hot glue gun for this as well, but I’d recommend double sided adhesive.
Then twist the other ends of the accordion strips around. You will have excess length that you’ll want to cut off. Depending on how big your folds are will depend on how much extra length you’ll have. I cut off about 7″ (I pulled it straight to measure it)and my folds were roughly 1/2″. I recommend folding extra because it seems like each lollipop I make the folds are slightly different and I need different lengths. With two 12″ long strips, I usually have enough. (if you want really big lollipops, you’ll use 3 or 4 strips of 12″ paper) Use your double sided adhesive to hold the ends together.
Now squish the circle and try to the center whole as small as possible.
Put hot glue all around the center trying to get inside the accordion grooves as best as you can. (I tried other adhesives for this step, but this is what I found worked best for me. I tried glue dots and double sided adhesive strips, but nothing held for longer than 5 minutes. If you have something that works better, let me know)
Then attach one 2″ circle over the hot glue.
Repeat with the back side.
Attach the other 2″ circle to the back.
Hot glue on your button. I threaded my button with DMC floss.
Put hot glue under the front 2″ circle and slip your ribbon or hemp into the glue.
There you go! Simple, cute, and inexpensive!

    I made my first one like this with book pages, looked very vintage. I gave it a sprinkle of glitter. So easy and relaxing! Gonna give some as Christmas gifts to those that are hard to buy for.
