With Easter just a few short weeks away, I'm delighted to share my template for these easy DIY Easter paper cones with gift tags. (Link to pdf file provided below.)
They are the perfect size for presenting Easter treats. Just nestle them inside, or bundle them in tissue paper, tulle or fabric and cinch with a bow. Tuck them into Easter baskets, or with the addition of a ribbon handle, hang them from mantels, wreaths or door knobs.
The cones can also be used for small floral bouquets. To keep the flowers fresh, just insert the stems into plastic flower vials. (I always save mine from any arrangements I receive.)
Directions: Print the template onto cardstock. I chose kraft and blush color paper to compliment the sepia tone graphic. Cut the cone out, along the solid lines. (I cut the top of mine with scalloped scissors, but straight edge scissors would work as well.) Score and fold, along the dotted line. This space is the tab where you will apply glue, or double-sided tape to hold your cone together. After forming the cone, punch two small holes on each side, 1/2" down from the top. Thread ribbon from the inside of the cone to the outside, through the first punched hole. Leave a ribbon length of 4" on the outside of the cone and then tie a knot near the hole. Allow a length of ribbon for the handle, and then thread the remaining hole and tie a knot, again leaving a ribbon tail of 4". Cut out the gift tag and tie it around the knot on one side of the cone. (Supplies used to create my cones: Midori Ribbon, Stampin' Up Cardstock & hair flowers by me).
If you would like to share this on your blog or pinterest board, please be kind and add a link for your readers directly back to this post, rather than copying the pdf file onto your site.
Thanks so much & enjoy!
