Make Snow Cone Accents

web101553665These yummy snow cones appear in our August issue (on page 12). Here’s how you can make your own.

1. Punch a circle from cardstock, then coat the top 3/4″ with a thick layer of dimensional adhesive, like Aleene’s Paper Glaze. Pour chunky crystal glitter on top, then gently press the glitter into the adhesive. Sprinkle another thin layer of glitter, then allow it to dry.

2. Once the adhesive it dry, randomly ink the glitter with alcohol ink.

3. Create a simple cone template with the top the same width as the widest part of the inked glitter. Trace the cone onto patterned paper and trim.

4. Create the illusion of wrapped paper by taking a small piece of the same patterned paper,  adhering it at a random angle near the bottom of the cone,and trimming off the excess.

5. Roll a piece of white printer paper, use adhesive to secure the roll, then attach it to the top of the cone.

SOURCES Cardstock: WorldWin Papers. Patterned paper: BoBunny Press (green, blue), Chatterbox (orange), Making Memories (purple). Ink: Ranger Industries. Punch: Fiskars. Adhesive: Aleene’s Paper Glaze. Glitter: Jo-Ann Stores. Design: Lisa Storms.

  3. I love the snow cones, I’ve made a bunch and put them on cards for an ice cream day at work.

  4. There are so cute! My friend and I were like “we are so making these” when this issue came out! We just love them! Glad we got some sno-cone pics this year!

  5. I’m having issues getting the alcohol ink to look right on the glitter- how did you all apply it?! any suggestions? Thanks!!
