Neat-o Newspaper Lollies!

 I started with some left-over newspaper parts. I used full sheets and the colored pages.  I needed something that looked fun, but a tad bit masculine.
 I started accordian folding the paper on the short end.
 I folded two pages but you could fold as many as you'd like- each folded paper will make up two section of your lolly.
 I foleded the folded paper in half.
 I pulled out my hot glue gun and glued on the inside of the folded paper and stuck the edges together to form half {or a section} of the lolly.
 Once the section is formed, you will glue the outer edges to the outer edge{s} of other sections you have made. Attatch them at the glued edge.
 If you wanted a more "full" lolly you would add more sections simply by attatching edges.
 I only used two sections of folded newspaper (two pages). To hang mine, I attatched paper clips to the center to hold it together and give it some stablility {newpaper isn't the strongest of papers, no?} Then I tied twine to the paperclip and taped the twine to the top of the paper to hold the lolly upright.
 I'm sure there are a million other ways to do it...more glue, etc. This way was just simple and on-hand.
Aren't they just so cute?
