Paper Cone Favor Place Cards

This project started out as place cards for our office Christmas Party.  Place cards that were filled with goodies! I liked the project so much I used it for a birthday party for my mother on the weekend.  So many possibilities.
Here is a quick peek at the Christmas Cones.

My friend and co-worker Angela and I did these up on several lunch hours.
Here is a simple step by step.
Start out with some great scrapbooking paper, a template (which you can download here), some ribbon, a few embellishments, and some clear cellophane treat bags (not shown).  A glue stick or this handy dandy 2-sided tape dispenser thingy is needed as well.

Use your template to cut out the cones, then roll them up. We chose all different papers.
Oh, I should introduce you to Angela.  This is Angela’s thumb. Angela was not happy that her nail polish was in no condition for a photo shoot. (The next day she came to work completely manicured…haha!)

The snowflakes were cut on the Cricut machine to use behind the name tags.

If you decide to add the crepe paper to look like this, you might want to add it before rolling up your cones.  You don’t need it, but I think it adds some flair.

Place the treat bags inside the cone and fill with whatever goodies you like.  Tie up with ribbon.

Below is the birthday version of the favors.  These ones I filled with yogurt covered craisins, chocolate covered almonds and chocolate covered pretzels.

  3. Those are really pretty, Lisa, and what a great idea for place cards! I've got lots of Christmas scrapbook paper, so maybe I'll do a few for Christmas. I'll bet they went over well at both parties! Thanks for sharing the instructions and template.
