Hi everyone, it's Audrey, and today I have a fun party project idea to share with you featuring our new Wishes collection.
These adorable party cones make fabulous party favors, and are a quick and easy way to add a touch of festive cheer to your table settings. Use a group of them as an instant centerpiece, or place them at each individual seat. Fill them with small trinkets or your favorite candy. Any way you use them, these happy party cones will be a huge hit at your next celebration.
Here's how to get started.
Cut a variety of Wishes patterned paper into 7" squares.
Roll the paper squares into cone shapes and secure at the top with a staple. Use glue dots to seal the paper edge against the cone, if desired.
Create a crepe paper trim to go around the top of the cones by layering about 5 strips of crepe paper together and running them through your sewing machine. Using scissors, make small snips in the crepe on either side of the seam, being careful to not cut all the way through the center stitching. Adhere trim around the top of the cone using tacky glue.
Tie trim around the crepe paper, tying it into a bow at the side of the cone.
To make the pinwheels, cut 3" squares of patterned paper. Flip paper to the back side and draw an X through the center of the panel. Punch an 1/8" hole in the center when the X meets. Make cuts along the X pencil lines from each corner to about halfway up to the center dot. Punch 1/8" holes on the left corner of each triangle flap. Bend each flap up to the center hole, starting at one corner and working all the way around. Secure with a brad. Adhere pinwheels to the top of each cone.
Create decorative picks for the cones by adding stickers, die cuts, rosettes, and word strips cut from the Enhancements Paper to wooden skewers. Tuck skewers and candy into the cones.
