Pretty Paper Cones

This morning Elizabeth and I practiced making paper cones to hold party favors for her upcoming birthday tea. These are our three little attempts. A little scrapbook paper rolled into a cone (and trimmed), a bit of scrap ribbon (mostly left over from gifts), rickrack, glue and glitter--anyone can make these!

People sometimes tell me they wish they were craftier so they could make some of these things. To tell you the truth, I've never considered myself that creative. I get 90% of my ideas from other people. But the point of simple craft is that whether you're crafty or not, anyone can make the crafts I show here with a little time and a few basic supplies.

I have been looking for a quick craft to teach a group of women, something they could use over and over. This is perfect and can be used for every holiday. Aloha from Hawaii
