Valentine’s Day is less than a week away and many of us are so busy that we will end up running up to the local drug store to buy something generic for a person that is special to us. But don’t do that just yet! I have a simple and fun craft idea for you that can be done in less than 30 minutes and has “unique”, “love” and “personal” all over it! All you need are a few crafting supplies and no special skills to make a gorgeous, hand-made Valentine Gift Cone for your Valentine. Great for teachers, care givers, grand parents. . . anyone and everyone who is dear to your heart! I will show you each easy step in making this DIY cone for giving goodies. And remember that this can be adapted with the paper you use to suit every holiday and occasion! Even a “get well soon” and “thank you” are more special with this gift. Fill it with homemade treats or store bought goodies, notes, photos, jewelry and any little gift you can imagine! YOu can also make these in decorative papers that match your home and hang them on a pin board, suspend them with string or place on a mantle for a beautiful handmade accent. Lets get to it!
Decorative papers that coordinate for the occasion
Glue gun and Glue Sticks
Tissue paper gift wrap in coordinating colors
Embellishments such as buttons, flowers, bows etc.
*You are working with scissors and hot glue so PLEASE
be careful to not burn yourself and keep this project away from little ones.
Seriously, go right now and google images for “decorative paper cones”
