01 Place the patterned paper face down. Using a pencil, draw around the shape of the template. Using these pencil lines as a guide, cut out the 3D ice lolly template.
02 Turn the paper over so the patterned side is facing upwards. Use a craft knife to lightly score along each of the fold lines. Apply only a light pressure to avoid cutting the paper – you could use a bone folder scoring tool instead, if you have one.
03 Fold along each of the scored lines to make it quicker and easier to glue the tabs in place.
04 Apply tacky PVA glue to one of the lollipop stick tabs and attach the stick. Glue the bottom tabs of the ice lolly and the other side of the lollipop stick tab in place. Hold the base together for a few seconds while the glue starts to dry. Look down inside the lolly to check the tabs are all flat – if not, use the blunt end of a pencil to nudge them flat.
05 Apply glue to the remaining tabs and fold in the side of the lolly. Then tuck in the tabs as you stick down the curved top.
06 Finish by tucking in the last tab at the end of the curved strip. Smooth any pointed edges along the curve with your fingers. If you find you’ve pushed any part of the curve in too far, then hook it back with the point of the scissors and reposition before the glue dries. Repeat Steps 1-6 to make more lollies. Use a long needle and a length of baker’s twine to string the ice lollies together into a garland.
