Cutting & Scoring: 

  • Real Red – 4” x 11”, and (2) 1 ¾” circles
  • Emerald Envy – 3” x 11”, and (2) 1 ¾” circles
  • Whisper White – 2 ½” x 3 ½”
  • Silver Glimmer – 2 ½” x 3 ½”
  • Red & Silver Tinsel – 28” each color

 

Instructions - I encourge you to download the instruction sheet above to view a few step-by-step photos that aren't shown here:

  • Stamp “Peace, Love & Joy” in Basic Black ink on the Whisper White cardstock.  Die cut with a 2 ¾” long oval framelit (inside measurement).
  • Die cut the next size up scallop oval framelit from the Silver Glimmer paper.  Adhere together with Fast Fuse.
  • Fold a Silver Foil Snowflake in half on the longest point; repeat on each long point of the snowflake.  This will give the snowflake dimension.
  • Heat up glue gun.  Allow it to rest on the Silicone Craft Sheet in case it drips.
  • Using the Simply Scored board, score the Real Red cardstock at 1”, 2”, 3” and so on, scoring on each 1-inch mark.  Flip the cardstock over and score on the ½-inch marks, ½”, 1 ½”, 2 ½”, 3 ½” and so on.  Cut in half to 2” x 11”.  Fold each piece accordion style. 
  •   Repeat the scoring on the Emerald Envy cardstock and cut to 1½” x 11”. 
  • Place Fast Fuse on one end and adhere together to create a long strip. 
  • Place Fast Fuse on another end and adhere them together to create a circle. 
  • Place the Red accordion circle on the Silicone Craft sheet.  Gently squish the lolly down to form it, pulling it together towards the center.  Place hot glue in the center hole, keeping your hand on it as it cools.  Don’t let go as you add a 1-inch diameter circle of hot glue on top of the lolly’s center and adhere a red circle punch. It will be hot.  I recommend using a clear block to set on top of it.  It only takes about 30 seconds for the glue to cool off enough that you can let go. 
  • Flip the lolly over and add a strip of hot glue inside a fold and push the pointed end of the bamboo skewer to the center.  Hot glue the remaining red circle punch.  Set aside.
  • Repeat this process with the Emerald Envy, adding a circle punch on both sides.
  • Hot Glue the Emerald Envy to the center of the Real Red (the bamboo skewer should be on the back).
  • Hot Glue the stamped focal image to the Emerald Envy circle on the top of the lolly.
  • Tie tinsel in a bow onto the skewer, just below the lolly.
  • Add your lolly to dress up a holiday centerpiece, candy bowl, poinsettia, etc.  The bamboo skewer can be cut down as needed.  If the ends of the skewer are jagged or sharp, use a nail file to smooth it out.
  • You can also omit the bamboo skewer and use the lolly as an alternative to a bow on a gift box.
