Party DIY {Paper Cone Wrappers}


Summer may be over, but I still find myself craving the sweet summer treat on warm fall afternoons. While ice cream socials may be behind us for the time being, there are still a million uses for the sugary waffle cone. Imagine them filled with fresh fruit for a breakfast gathering or dipped in chocolate served along side a mug of decadent hot chocolate. No matter what you fill them with, they are cutest when wrapped in a custom paper cone to match the decor of your event. This party DIY is super simple and makes a big impact for the little time it takes. Here's how to make your own!

:: Supplies ::
Patterned Scrapbook Paper
Ruler
Pen
Scissors
Double Sided Tape

:: Directions ::
1. Begin by measuring a single line 8" in length. From the end points of the line, draw 2 lines 7" in length on a angle so they meet in the middle.
2. Cut the triangle out.
3. Round off the top part (original 8" line) until the triangle is 5" in height.
4. Place double stick tape on the back edge of the triangle and wrap snugly around cone. Fill, serve, & impress!
