WOW, it’s a new year starting today. That means one thing, Valentine’s Day is just around the corner. I thought I’d prepare you and me so here are cute DIY Valentine’s Day Candy Cones to make.
I found these darling Valentine Cones on the Martha Steward website while surfing Google for something else. When I saw these, I said, “I can make that!”…so I did. Very easy and you can make it too!! These candy cones will make any teacher happy. They can also be filled with gifts other than candy.
DIY Valentine’s Day Candy Cones
Supplies you’ll need:
- decorative card stock (I used two-sided paper, but you don’t have to)
- printer to print cone pattern
- double-sided tape
- bone folder or scorer (anything that will help you make a soft fold)
- gift tag (save scraps for your tags)
- hole punch
- candy or gift to put inside
- writing pen and a stamp if you have one
- First go here to print out cone pattern. (you may have to search for them. They are called Carnation Cones)
- Print and cut out the cone on stock paper to make your pattern
- Trace cone pattern onto your decorative card stock and cut out. Note: You can get 4 cones on a 12 x 12 card stock. You can also just print out the pattern on the card stock you intend to use (8.5 x 11), as the pattern already has a design on it.
- Slightly score (fold) the area with the dotted lines
- Place double-sided tape on the scored part and fold pattern to make the cone. Play with it first BEFORE you put the tape on it.
- Tie ribbon around cone. Here’s a tip. Place cone upside down on table and tie your ribbon around it that way. I even put a piece of tape in the back to hold the ribbon in place while I’m tying the bow.
- Use your scrap paper for the gift tags. I used a punch and punched out a tag. You can cut a circle or square for a tag. Hole punch tag and tie around one side of the ribbon or clip to cone using a paper clip or tiny.
- Fill with delicious candy, gift etc. (I put shred down inside first)
