Wedding Favor Cones How-To

Martha Stewart Weddings, Summer 2010

The next best thing to ice cream cones? Candy cones.

1. Download our clip art (Cone 1 or Cone 2), and print onto metallic paper. (You'll get four cones per 8 1/2-by-11-inch sheet. To create a display of cones in an alternating pattern, print half the sheets with one page and half with the other.)

2. Use a paper trimmer to cut each sheet into quarters.

3. Lay flat, lengthwise, with message facing down. Roll into a cone shape, with "Enjoy" centered on cone, and secure with clear tape or clear adhesive circle labels.

4. Cut iridescent film into 7 1/2-inch squares. Place candies in center, bundle them up, and tie with ribbon.

5. Insert into the cone.
