Vintage Halloween Treat Cone

Hello and Welcome!!!
I'm sharing a wonderful Halloween project today that is super easy to put together and is loads of fun to decorate! The talented Ignacio of Nicecrane Designs designed this Vintage Halloween Treat Cone which has multiple uses. You can hang these on a Halloween tree as ornaments, place candy in them for special trick or treaters or you can use them to jazz up your Halloween party table. Each cone prints on a 8.5 x 11" sheet in color and you also receive with this download three labels which can be used on candy jars or as a gift tag perhaps. You can see them below in the preview sheet by Nicecrane Designs.

Ignacio included cut lines so you know exactly where to fold each side. Here's how I assembled my Vintage Halloween Treat Cone. I used a paper trimmer and trimmed the sides (watch for the gray tab which is attached to one side, you need it to attach your cone so do not cut if off). On the larger ends I left 1/8th of an inch to see where the fold lines were and then I grabbed my Scor Pal and using the score lines I scored my cone. It gives your treat cone nice clean lines and double stick tape was used to join the gray tab to the cone. Now for the fun part which is decorating these. I used black lace trim for the top because they happen to be for two special girls I know. :-) More ideas would be to punch a paper border, use ribbon, metal embellishments or buttons. I added orange trim to two sides and adhered with paper glue and orange tinsel created a nifty handle for my cone.
 Best of all, Ignacio created another cone, Vintage Halloween Treat Cone II, which I will be sharing next week. Here's the preview sheet in case you are a bit curious to see it. ;)
