mmmm, ice cream….by melissa cash 2


Hello!  I hope you are all recovering from the hustle and bustle of Christmas.  We had an amazing day with lots of good food and family time.
Today I am sharing some ice cream cone boxes that I made for an upcoming birthday celebration.

I used my Silhouette Cameo and this cut file from SVG Cuts to create these adorable boxes.  The tops come off and you could easily fill the boxes with candies or small toys for the kiddos.

At first the boxes are a little fiddly to put together, but after I had completed the first one, they went together in a snap.  I started with the cones and cone panels first.  To create each of the cones, I used Tombow Mono Multi on each of the glue tabs and held them for a 5-10 count and they were nice and secure.  The cone panels are separate and I ran them through my Cuttlebug with a plaid embossing folder and then added some Tombow Mono Multi to each panel and applied them.  I added a little color to the bottom of the cones with some Tea Dye Distress ink.

The tops consist of the cone top and the panels that were cut from print papers.  Again, I used Tombow Mono Multi to hold the cone top together and then again to attach the panels to the cone.  For the top of each cone, I used a Tombow Power Tab to attach the red buttons creating a cherry on top of each cone.

Finally, I used an assortment of trims and embellishments to decorate each of the cones.

Don’t you think these would make adorable party favors for a child’s birthday party?  I sure do!
