Festive Favor Cones

Use these fun cones as Christmas party favors for your guests. Each cone can hold a small gift, such as an ornament or edible goodies. Fill with chocolates, candy canes, popcorn, or jelly beans. These are also great for giving small baked goods to co-workers and friends. If using these to hold baked goods, place the treats in a food safe bag prior to putting into the paper cone.

Supplies & Tools:

  • Cardstock
  • Ruler
  • Pencil
  • Scissors
  • Hot glue
  • Hot glue gun
  • Ribbon or other embellishments, as desired


  1. Using ruler and pencil, measure a 6" square onto cardstock and cut out.
  2. Roll the paper to make a cone shape.
  3. Apply a thin line of glue along the edge and press the cone together, lining up the top edge of the paper.
  4. Add embellishments as desired.

Ideas from the elves:

  • Cut a piece of ribbon or yarn and wrap around cone. Tie a bow, and use hot glue to hold in place.
  • Cut designs from scrapbook paper and glue on the front of cone.
  • Add sparkly gems.
  • Cut a thin strip of scrapbook paper and tape around the cone.
  • Add an appliqué, such as a poinsettia or other flower.
  • Make smaller cones by cutting 5" squares.
  • Make rounded cones by drawing an arc (using a compass).
