Quick Ornament

I borrowed the idea for this from some goodies BFF brought me when she came to visit last August.  It only took about 10 minutes to put it together.  These might be good craft fair items!  I'll post details later - gotta go get the pies out of the oven. ;-)

Edited to add:  Cut a 12" strip of pattern paper 1-1/4" wide. Use scoring tool (Simply Scored) and score every 1/2". Turn paper over and score every 1/2" on the 1/4" marks (1/4", 3/4", 1-1/4", 1-3/4", etc.). Use border punch on edge, then pleat at the score lines. Adhere short ends with sticky tape (adding loop for hanging, if desired), and glue punched circles to center on both sides. 

Variations: Sponge ink on edges for vintage look, glue glitter to edges instead of using border punch, use small doilies, large brads, or ribbon roses in center - wherever your imagination takes you! To vary the size of the finished lollie, use different widths of paper (note: for wider strips, it may be necessary to piece two strips together).


  1. I like this! So cool how the striped paper looks swirled. I might have to make these for my SU! Christmas tree.

  2. Fabulous. I need to know how to do this. LOL Good idea for Miss. V.

  3. Oh this is lovely, Cindy! Especially love the extra touch the punched border adds. . . .


Thank you for visiting - I'd love to hear from you!
