SWEET Treat

Here is the project I spoke of earlier in the week in THIS post.

Isn't it COOL?? It was so fun to make with my stamping friends last Friday night. You can fill this treat holder with those cool ice cream candies that Baskin-Robbins has, or just pop a gift card for ice cream inside and you've got an instant package for a party. How about one of these at each place-setting with little trinkets inside? All ages will enjoy whatever you pack inside. It is sized slightly larger than a real ice cream cone!

I got the idea from Andrea Walford and purchased her tutorial instructions.

  • The cone/ice cream is cut from two pieces of Pretty in Pink card stock and then put together with sticky strip.
  • The dollop of ice cream is "dipped" in Versa Mark, then coated with Dazzling Diamonds and heat set with a heat gun.
  • The cone sides in So Saffron are cut in triangles, run through the Big Shot with a texture plate and then sponged with Soft Suede to help the texture show up. Stick them on with Sticky Tape.
  • The sentiment is from Teeny Tiny wishes dipped in Chocolate Chip and decorated with brads, then popped up onto the cold creation with Stampin' Dimensionals. YUM!
Here is another look at one of the upcoming changes to our Pals Paper Arts Blog! Beginning next Thursday, August 19th we will be introducing a chic new makeover (banner, badges and more!) that will offer a whole new twist on paper crafting challenges! Stay tuned!

Please let me know if you have any questions and I'd love to read your comments!

So fun . . . how did you make the waffle pattern on the cone--I see where you added texture but the pattern? Hugs, M
