Designer Tips: This makes a fun gift wrap for a small birthday gift or other treat. The foil makes it really sturdy. Tacky glue works well to keep the tabs in place.

Supplies:

Instructions:

  1. For the Ice Cream Cup: Position the template on the back of the blue paisley foil and trace the entire cup pattern including all fold lines. Keep pencil close to the inside edge. Remove the template and cut around the outer edges. Score all fold lines and fold as follows; Fold A is a Valley Fold and Fold B is a Mountain Fold. Glue each tab to the inside of its neighboring panel.
  2. For the Ice Cream: Position the template on the back of the Pink Polka Dot Foil. Trace the entire pattern including all fold and cut lines. Keep your pencil close to the inside edge. Remove the template and cut around the outer edges and along the inner cut lines. Score all fold lines and then fold. Glue each tab to the inside of its neighboring panel. Working clockwise, hook each top swirl in the center. Tuck each swirl under the previous one with the last swirl under the first (top will be very fluffy and edges will stick out a bit).
  3. Place the ice cream in the ice cream cup. Trace and cut out the topper from light pink cardstock. Working clockwise, fold each arm inward, interlocking at the center. Lift the first arm to tuck in the last arm. Add mini brad at the center of the topper and Zot to the top of your ice cream. Trace and cut out a light pink tag. Write or computer print Happy Birthday! on the tag then punch a hole at the top. Hang tag from ice cream with silver memory thread. Trace and cut out spoon from blue paisley foil and glue to the ice cream as shown.
