Finally -- Instructions for another October class card

If you haven't used the Simply Scored scoring tool from Stampin' Up! to make a "lolly," now's your chance. These cute pumpkin and spider lollies were made by scoring a 12" x 1-3/8" strip of Designer Series Paper every 1/4", then folding accordian-style and squeezing it all together into a flat circle. Very fun and easy once you've made one or two . . . . (We made these in our October classes.)

I realize it's kind of late to make these cards for Halloween . . . but you could do the same thing with some cute Christmas paper and some of the wonderful Christmas stamps Stampin' Up! is featuring in current catalogs.

1. Score 8-1/2" x 5-1/2" cardstock at 4-1/4" and fold away from scoreline to create card. Adhere 5-1/4" x 4" cardstock to card front.

2. Adhere ribbon to front of Designer Series Paper (DSP), wrap ends around to back of DSP and adhere. Adhere DSP to card front.

3. To begin making your lolly, score 1-3/8" x 12" DSP at 1/2" and every 1/2" across to end. Turn paper over so the scorelines you just made are facing down, and beginning at 1/4", score every 1/2" to end (basically, you're scoring half-way between each of the scorelines you've already made). Fold the DSP back and forth, accordian-style, away from the scorelines and glue one end over the other to create a tube (I used a Two-Way Glue Pen for this). Once you have this tube, you're ready to assemble your lolly.

4. You will need a top and bottom to hold the lolly together. For this card, I cut the largest circle on the Scallop Circle #2 Die from Basic Black card stock; you can either cut a smaller Basic Black scallop circle with the same die, or use the 1-3/4" Scallop Circle punch. Spread Tombow Glue on the larger of the two scallop circles, being careful to not get glue on the scallop edges. Holding together the top of your DSP tube and spreading out the bottom edges, place your DSP tube and flatten it over the glue. Once it flattens out, you'll want to push the ends toward the center of the circle so the hole in the center is as small as possible. Hold it in place for a few seconds until the glue starts to set up. Place Tombow Glue on the smaller Basic Black scallop circle and place it over the center of the lolly. Place something on top of the smaller circle to hold everything in place until the glue dries.

5. For this card, I stamped one of the images from the Batty for You set on Whisper White paper and punched it out with a 1-3/4" Circle punch. Then I stamped either the same or a coordinating image on the coordinating color card stock and punched it out with a 1-3/8" Circle punch. Adhere the smaller circle to the center of the larger circle so the words appear around the outer edge of the larger circle, and then adhere it to the center of the scallop circle on top of the lolly.

6. Adhere lolly to front of card with Stampin' Dimensionals.

That's it! If this is all very confusing to you . . . and it's likely to be -- it took me awhile to figure out how to make these cute little things . . . there are several locations online where you can view a tutorial. Here's a link to one of them: (Click on the Paper Rosettes Stampin' Up! Simply Sent

Dawn actually does hers a little differently . . . she uses Sticky Paper instead of Tombow Glue, which may be a little more expensive, but eliminates the need for having to wait for the glue to dry. She also builds hers upside down. Now that I've viewed her video, I think her technique is probably a little easier than mine. (See?! We learn something new every day!!!!) The cards she shares are her video are also very cute!!!!

I hope you enjoy these lollies (or paper rosettes, or paper medallions . . . whatever you choose to call them)!
