These DIY Party Favor Cones are a fun little craft project fashioned from scrapbook paper!
You can shop for single sheets at the craft store or use a themed scrapbook paper pad.
I used double-sided shamrock scrapbook paper to add some
pattern on the inside the cones when rolled, using the same
method as my Easter Treat Candy Cones.
These cones come together quickly once you have all
your supplies gathered, working in an assembly line fashion.
Most scrapbook paper comes in 12 x 12-inch sheets which I cut into 8 x 8 squares.
After cutting your squares, you’ll have a 4 x 12-inch strip of paper leftover.
I cut each 4 x 12-inch strip into (2) 2 x 12 strips.
Roll your 8″ square of scrapbook paper into a cone, overlapping the edges.
After I rolled the cones, I used a binder clip to help them hold their shape
then used a glue gun to secure them.
I’ve learned through trial and error that the way to create a nice pointed end to your cone
is to glue the bottom first, gluing your way up to the top of the cone.
When you get to the top, you can overlap the edges of your cones as much as needed.
I glued some silver tinsel ribbon from my gift wrap stash to the front of the cones to cover the seam.
It adds a decorative vintage touch and helps conceal any extra glue that shows on the seam.
Feel free to use the ribbon, decorative braid, rickrack or trim of your choice.
/ pipe cleaners to make a decorative handle or hanger.
Accordion pleat your strips to make for a decorative cuff for your cones. You’ll only need
1 strip per cone, so you’ll have an extra pattern to play with.
When your chenille stems are in place, glue a 2 x12-inch accordion pleated cuff
to the top of the cone. I chose a contrasting paper to add interest.
To embellish your cones, add some scrapbooking stickers and tie on some ribbon to the handles.
and attached some to some glittery shamrocks I found at Michaels.
Now the fun begins, filling your party favor cones with St. Paddy’s Day goodies!
Stuff the bottom of the cones with tissue paper first
so they hold their shape, then top with some green paper shred.
I added some gold coins, known to attract leprechauns and Rolos, individually gold wrapped
chocolate and caramel candy, for some edible gold!
Glittery shamrock party picks, Shamrock, ‘Lucky’ and ‘Happy St. Patrick’s Day buttons
and shamrock straws were found at the Dollar Spot at Target.
You can find affordable fillers, coins, paper shred and goodies at
Hobby Lobby, Michaels and Dollar Tree.
