Are you a cone or cup person? I was usually a cup type of girl myself (save a few calories? why not!) But why eat them at all when you can use them as a vase and pass on feeling the guilt. Now, that’s my type of treat. These paper flower ice cream cone bouquets would be perfect for birthday parties, a good cheer up, or just the floral/ice cream lover like myself.
Materials: ice cream cone (waffle or sugar), x-acto knife, glue gun, cutting board, scissors, skewers about 3-4″ long, garden pot 2″ in diamter(optional to be used as stand), bright colored paper for flowers, green paper for leaves, striped paper for cone covers (free download here)

Step 1: Using Jordan’s party hat template, scale down the size to fit your cone and draw it diagonally on the striped paper.
Step 2: Cut around the template.
Step 3: Wrap it around the cone and secure it with double-sided tape.
Step 4: For the flowers, I created a rose from my tutorial here.
Step 5: Glue gun the skewer to the inside of the flower and hold in place until dry.
Step 6: Cut out leaves from the green paper.
Step 7: Roll them around a pencil to create shape.
Step 8: Dab some glue onto the tip of the leaf and attach to the cone paper.
Step 9: Voila!
To make a flower pot stand:
Step 1: Insert the skewer into the bottom hole of the stand.
Step 2: Turn it over and insert the skewer into the bottom of the cone.
