Hello, I'm Linsey and like you, I adore papercrafting of all kinds!  From scrapbooking to stamping and all the fun stuff in between, it's what I love to do most!  I also enjoy meeting new friends who share my passion for this hobby and I love to learn new techniques and share fun ideas! 

 

 

Supplies :

· Scor-Pal

·  tan or craft cardstock for card base and cone front; cardstock of your choice for ice cream (here pink, chocolate and vanilla)

· embellishments of your choice for "toppings" (here white foam paint, chunky and fine glitter)

·  glue

Step 1:

Print and cut out the 3 piece Ice Cream Cone pattern, then trace each piece onto the appropriate coloured cardstocks.

Step 2:

After you have cut out all three pieces for each ice cream cone, sponge around the ice cream piece for added depth, if desired. Fold the base in half to create your card form. 

Step 3: Take your cone front and turn it sideways scoring it at 1" straight across. 

Step 4: Align top right corner of cone (X) to the 6" groove and bottom right corner (X) to the same groove. Score at every half inch in both directions. 

Step 5: Turn so the other top corner (Y) is at the 6" groove and the bottom opposite corner (Y) is also on the 6’ groove. Score at every half inch. Now it looks like a true cone. You choose which side you would like to use, embossed or de-embossed.

Step 6: Glue the ice cream to the cone.  Adhere the cone and ice cream to the front of the  folded card. 

Step 7: Decorate with "toppings" of your choice!  Finished project measures 5 1/2" length by 3" width (at its widest part).
