Carrot Cone

I saw this technique tutorial on SCS and just had to adapt it to a carrot treat cone!  For the basic cone instructions, go HERE.  To create the carrot, follow the instructions below.


Cut a circle 8 inches in diameter.  If you want longer "greens", cut the circle bigger.  The circle needs to be pliable to mold it.  Lay the circle on some paper towel and spritz with water (I prefer to use febreze because it  makes the paper a little softer and it smells good to).  Wad the circle up into a tight ball and then flatten back out as shown.



Pinch the center of the circle and gather up the edges until you have a semi folded cone in your hand as shown.

Cut 1 inch off the tip of the cone as shown.



Apply a strong adhesive like sticky strip on the inside rim of the cone and then adhere the tip of the cone around the edges of the cone as shown.  You will need to fold and pleat the edges of the paper to fit nicely onto the edge of the cone. For the outer edge of the cone, I punched a strip of certainly celery cardstock with the scallop border punch, sprayed with water and wadded it up, flatten back out and glue in place around outer edge of cone.



Fill cone with treats and then gather the top closed and tie closed with a celery satin ribbon.  You could attach a hand stamped card if you choose.  I created a card (that isn't shown in the picture) that features a little Bunny Chow poem (stamp by Inky Antics)

Hopping on his way to a picnic lunch,
a bunny paused for something to munch.
He reached in his basket for a treat,
something tasty for us to eat!
Not lettuce...not carrots...
it was Bunny Chow!
Who needs vitamins, anyhow?
