taffy cone party favor

Oh friends. I'm seriously loving planning events. With the summer Eat Drink Create in the works, I'm researching, planning, and plotting like cray.

Along with organizing a rad event for all the Colorado folks out there, I'm also continuing my Be Creative project by trying different techniques for sparking creativity. May is all about play and channeling that inner child... you know? That part of us that creates + shares fearlessly and playfully like when we were little? Yep. It's there. Buried under my overly analytical ways...

I had the idea for this little party favor diy during one of my brainstorming seshes with "play" in mind. My inner child definitely approves of these taffy cone favors... and of eating all the taffy after these pictures were taken.

01 Wrap twine or string around the ice cream cone and tie a bow. This step is optional, but super adorbs. I recommend.

02 Cut tissue paper into 4" x 4" squares.

03 Cut regular paper into 3" x 3" squares.

04 Place tissue paper into the ice cream cone first, followed by the regular paper. These little guys create a sturdy structure to hold the taffy.

05 Add taffy into the cone one at a time. One cone will hold 5-6 pieces.

06 Place taffy cone gently in a small clear plastic favor bag. Feel free to add confetti or additional candy to the bag.

07 Tie the top of the bag with more twine or string. Now that taffy is secure and ready to par-taaayyy.
