What do you do for the father figures in your life on Father’s Day? Breakfast in bed? Tickets to a sports game? Since cooking is not my forte and sports aren’t really my jam, I decided to stick to what I know best: Paper! These Father’s Day LolliPOP Prize Ribbons are simple to make, sweet to taste, and include a pun to boot! What more could you want? A folded paper medallion is adorned with a sweet lollipop and a punny note of appreciation: #1 POP!, You don’t suck!, Sweetest Pop! Every father likes to hear that he is the best so go ahead and shower him with compliments. Just don’t forget the candy, because that’s important.
- Cardstock in various colors
- Scoring tool or exacto knife
- bone folder
- Hot glue gun
- Circle punch, optional
- Pinking shears, optional
- For a 2-tone medallion, cut 2 strips 2-inches wide by 12-inches long, each in a different color.
- Accordion fold the the strips by scoring the strip longways in .5-inch sections. Use a bone folder to make crisp folds
- Glue both edges of each strip together to create a continuous circle.
- Bring the upper edge of the circle together in the middle to create a medallion and secure with a generous dab of hot glue in the center.
- Cut additional strips of paper in various widths and glue to the back to hang down below the medallion. Use scissors to trim the edges in a slant, pinked edges, etc.
- Take a lollipop and glue to the center of the medallion. Trim outer packaging of the candy if necessary.
- Write a cute note to the receiving father! We used: #1 Pops, Best Pop, I Love You Pop, Top Pop, You Don’t Suck, I’m a Sucker for you, Number 1 Pop, and Sweetest pop.
