Paper Ice Lollies

Something that always sparks joy in the summer months is the sound of the ice cream van. The rush to find shrapnel, racing outside, the excitement of deciding what to have… it’s small pleasures like this that have the ability to turn frowns upside down. In celebration, Corinne Bradd has crafted classic lollies from paper, using minimal supplies but having lots of fun in the process. Which design is making your mouth water?

YOU WILL NEED:
FREE Ice Lolly templates
Cardstock, various colours
Lolly sticks
Punch, hole
Adhesives: 3D foam pads, glue

METHOD:
1. Download the templates from our website and copy them onto thin scrap card by tracing around them. Group the lollies by letter and cut each piece from brightly coloured, contrasting cardstock.

2. Use the blade of a pair of scissors to gently curve the edges of each piece under. Layer together using 3D foam pads close to the lower edges of the layers, then glue the top portions together to give a slight 3D effect.

3. For the Zoom-style lolly, use a ball-ended tool to score slanted diagonal lines from the top point to the base. Concertina fold along the lines and re-flatten before layering, using 3D foam pads in the centre sections to give the raised shape.

4. For the Twister-inspired design, lay the pink and yellow swirls evenly down the length of the base before glueing in place at the same angle. With all lollies, trim any overlaps from the edges once they are assembled.

5. Fix a lolly stick to the centre back of each one, ensuring it is in line with the top. Use a hole punch to create hundreds and thousands from leftover cardstock. Fix to the lollies as desired with spots of PVA.
