Paper Treat Cone Tutorial + Giveaway

Hey y'all! We are Trish and Bonnie from Uncommon Designs and we are so enjoying sharing with you guys on the SEI blog this week!

We have been sharing with you some simple ideas for a slumber party or any time. One of our favorite activities to get the kiddos to settle down a bit is to watch a movie. If you are going to watch a good movie, you must have popcorn!

Today, we are going to show you how to make a simple treat cone for popcorn or any other fun treat!



Paper Treat Cone Tutorial



Supplies:
2 patterns of coordinating scrapbook paper
Template for Cone
Scissors
Glue or Tape


The first thing you will do is to trace the template onto the back of the piece of scrapbook paper. I used paper from SEI's Holiday Cheer paper pack. The template was downloaded from the Hostess with the Mostess Site. Next, simply cut out the templates.


Now you will flip over the patterned paper to the back and run glue down one of the edges.


The next step is to roll the paper into a cone form and press the outer edge where the glue is on top of the unglued edge to seal.


Now is the fun part! Trim! I used a piece of coordinating paper and cut it into about a 1 1/2 inch strip by about 11 inches. I then cut small slits across the top and bottom of the strip.


Glue all around the top edge of the cone.


Now all you need to do is press the middle that is uncut on the top edge of the cone and press to adhere. Trim away the excess and you are done! Fill with lots and lots of popcorn and you are sure to have some happy slumber party guests!

Thanks again for having us! Stop by Uncommon Designs sometime! We'd love to have you!
