Candy Cones




French traditionally present new babies with these gracefully shaped paper cones filled with blue or pink almond candies. We think they make great seasonal favors.


  1. Step 1


    Trace a cone shape onto heavy card stock, double-strength wrapping paper, or scraps of patterned wallpaper. With a bone folder, score paper on fold lines, then fold into shape. Decorate each cone with store-bought trim or lacy motifs from paper doilies.

  2. Step 2


    Close along one side with white craft glue. Fill with candy, make two holes in each wide flap of the lid, and close with fancy cord or ribbon. Keep cones on a silver tray near the door, and give them to your guests throughout the holidays.

    This came out beautiful! I glued brown cardstock to the back of patterned scrapbook paper and made the cone out of that. I drew up a template in Microsoft Publisher and it worked very well. Here is a link to the template. rr253/kimkubicek/ConeTemplate.gif (paste into address bar but remove space in URL)

    does anyone have a template for the cone shape? It looks like a real cute idea. But, I'm not very good about my own freehand templates.
