Ice Cream Cone

A little while back we were eating sugar cones for dessert.  My 8 yr. old daughter "disappeared" for a bit and then returned with the above card.  She'd gotten the bright idea to use the cone wrapper as a template and make an ice cream cone card out of it.  I did not help her at all, in fact I didn't even know what she was doing till she "reappeared."  I thought it turned out so pretty and wanted to share the templates I made for the cone (and also a scoop of  ice cream template).
You can use this template two ways:
1. Cut out the sugar cone and fold in half using the cone as a card (as my daughter did)
2. Cut out the sugar cone/fold in half/glue down the right side and use it as a pocket for the tag (illustration below)
Either way it makes a fun summer card and I'm glad my daughter thought of it!
