Last year I made one of these for Cooper before his first day of school.
So, this year I wanted to do one better. I grabbed up his school supply list and headed
out to the store for super cheap finds to go inside. I found tons of good stuff and
some special extras I think he'll love. Here's the step by step instructions for making these. You can click on images to see larger views.
Using poster board, a string and pencil, draw out a curve from corner to corner, trace
the template out onto some fun wrapping paper, then take your template and roll it over
the edge of a table to create a curl, follow the line of the curves.
You'll then glue the template into the shape of a cone and cover it with the wrapping paper.
Cut strips of tissue paper, glue them together and then glue the long strip
around the inside of your cone.
Now get all the goodies for back to school and feel up your cone.
Tie with a pretty ribbon and give to your new back to schooler!
Use this idea to give other great gifts through the year and get your little one
involved in making them.
