Here’s what I used:
Silhouette Cameo + Cutting Mat + Cutting Blade
File to cut rosettes: Accordion Lollipop available in the Silhouette Store
Cardstock papers: 4 layers worth
Hot Glue Gun
Baker’s TwinePaper Selections:
I chose a vintage rustic base for the banner and used some vintage looking papers that are kind of spooky, I guess. I used a variation so not all the same pattern. I then wanted a little fun design, and I thought black and white chevron paper would go well with the orange circle and black letters, both of which are glitter cardstock, although it’s hard to detect the glitter in the images.Process:
In the images below you’ll see the steps, and it’s pretty simple. Cut the design of your accordion lollipop, remove from the cutting mat and begin folding on the perforated lines of one c-shape, this is creating half of the whole accordion lollipop.
