First I have to tell some exciting news!! I got a spot on the Ruche blog!! My Paris travel photos
made it on there...
So exciting! You can read how to become part of the Ruche family (with super benefits) here.
As promised here is the tutorial for these super-quick and easy (but pretty) favor cones.
All you need for this tutorial is:
*double sided tape
*newspaper or music sheets (I used pages from a vintage book)
*a clear acrylic stamp and acrylic block
okay let's get started...
The sheet of paper you use should be a rectangle shape. So along the length, fold the paper towards you, making sure you get the pointy shape in the corner. Don't press the fold, sort of roll it towards to, you only need to press it down in the corner. Roll it towards you over again about 3 times.
Once you have the cone shape, you can know staple the bottom.
Place a piece of double sided tape along the edge to secure the edge to the cone.
Here you can see it all secured.
Next take you acrylic stamp and attach it to your block, ink it and stamp your small doily. If you are making large quantities, it's a a good idea to get a little assembly line going. I first do all the sheets, then I stamp all the doilys etc.
Next I attach a piece of double sided tape in the middle of the doily at the back.
And then finally attach the doily to the cone. I like to attach it along the "seam" of the cone, to help hide it.
All you need to do now is fill it with your favor treats. I like to fill mine with candy-coated peanuts. Make sure to leave about 2cm space at the top so that you can fold the "flap" down and secure it in place. I like to sew my flap with the machine and you can even embellish it further with a bit of ruffled crepe paper or a ribbon.
