Rosette Lollipops

Pretty Paper Lollipops. Cheer up your Christmas mantel with pretty paper rosette lollipops! Fun, festive and just right for the season. Depending on the type of paper you choose, these can be made to fit into any decor theme or party theme.






















We used Martha Stewart Christmas scrap book paper {12 x 12}, doilies, snowflake confetti we found at Walmart for .97 a pack, cup cake papers, glue gun, Dollar Tree straws as the stick and a 2" flower punch.


We cut the paper in 2" strips and left the length at 12 " and made an accordion fold. We brought the ends of the fold together and taped them. We pressed gently on the middle of the paper to flatten it and make the rosette shape. We glued the center to keep it together. While the glue dried, we punched out or middle pieces and and prepared our layering pieces. We glued our rosette to our doili and cup cake papers, allowed to dry.


Next, we glued on our embellishments and glued our straw stick onto the rosette. We were able to place the stick in between the rosette and the backing so that it made a clean finish on the back. If you need a visual, here is a link with several videos of tutorials for making the rosettes.



Ready to decorate your mantel for Christmas! We love these on our Christmas Mantel.



Everyone loves lollipops! Adding them to your Christmas decorating is fun and adds a little whimsy!
Be creative and have fun making these and decorating with these!

I know that the Lord secures justice for the poor
and upholds the cause of the needy.
Psalm 140: 12
