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).
