5. Unfold your circle again.
6. Punch two holes along the crease of the back and front covers. Refer to photo for the hole positions. Thread your ribbon or twine through the holes. Fold up your circle into its cone shape again.
7. Place some adhesive on the bottom of the smaller circles and place into the top pocket of each cone page. Tip: glue the ice cream tops from back to front so that when your album is closed the ice cream scoops are lined up.
8. Voila! You’ve just made your ice cream cone album.
In my finished example I used a large scalloped circle for the cone, bright and cheerful pattern paper for the ice cream tops. The story of my album celebrates my daughter’s latest ‘goto’ fashion item, her cool sun shades.
There are so many fun ways to use the ice cream cone album- how about birthday invitations or dedicate each ice cream cone page to a family member and their favourite ice cream flavour? The ice cream book can also be a fun accent on a scrapbook layout for extra photos or journaling. You could turn the ice cream cone into a cupcake by simply trimming across the middle of the cone. Ooh- imagine all the yummy ways to decorate your cupcake tops- think glitter, tinsel, and flocking!
Hope you have fun creating your own sweet treats.
