Party Cones {Feeling Crafty}

2013-02-26_1125_web

The MOMs group I belong to at church hosts an annual Oscars Party. We usually have a theme, like “PJ’s and Pigtails” or “Red Carpet” and we always have a potluck. We’ll bring appetizers, desserts or beverages to share. This year, I planned to make it easy and just bring some wine. But then inspiration hit and I decided to use some of my pretty cardstock (that I have mountains of!) to make party cones. Costco sells this amazing popcorn mix of caramel and cheddar popcorn; it’s G.H Cretors Chicago Mix. I figured that would be the perfect filler!

To make the cones, it took just a few easy steps:

  1. Select 8-1/2″ x 11″ patterned cardstock – (1) sheet / cone
  2. Lightly draw or trace a circle along top edge (I used pie dish)
  3. Cut along marked line
  4. Run a strip of double sided tape along bottom edge
  5. Take top right (rounded) corner and roll toward bottom left corner, shaping and creating cone along the way
  6. Fill with popcorn or other delicious treats.
  7. Enjoy!

These are great for any party – just choose your paper to compliment your event theme and/or color scheme! These are even fun to make just for your family on movie night!

Thanks for stopping by and have a joyful, creative, blessing filled day!
Live creatively!
