Halloween Treat Holder Cone

Halloween Treat Holder

This Halloween Treat Holder Cone is fun and easy to make and will look terrific at your ghoulish gatherings!

This four-sided cone goes together quickly thanks to the Petal Cone Die and the Big Shot. The Howlstooth & Scaringbone Designer Series Paper works super for this Halloween project, but will work equally well for Thanksgiving too. The die creates the circular flaps as part of the cut and those could certainly be left just as is.

I chose to add a little contrast by die-cutting card stock for the flaps and in place of the scallop piece from the die, substituted a black doily half created with the Delicate Doilies Sizzlet.  For the handle, I created a zig-zag strip of card stock using the Finishing Touches Edgelit, then simply placed a die-cut handle on either side of the strip. It is held in place on the inside of the cone with Black Glimmer Brads.

HIP TIP: Scraps of card stock make the perfect "shredded filler" for the cone. Simply use a paper trimmer to cut super thin strips and run them through a paper crimper or scrunch them up.

Stampin' Up! Spooky Bingo Bits Stamp Set

The Spooky Bingo Bits stamp set provides the perfect sentiment for yummy treats. I used Stampin' Write Markers (More Mustard, Tangerine Tango, Basic Black) to ink the stamp to achieve the graduation of color (ombre).

One more tip: be sure to wait to fill the treat cones until just before your guests arrive. For some reason the treats don't seem to stay in these treat cones. I have no idea where they go. ;)
