Last year, my Aunt Doris sent us some Victorian Cone coloring sheets and this photo of her German cousin Sabine holding one. I'd never heard of this
tradition and found out that in the Victorian era, paper cones were filled with treats and embellished with lace, ribbons, and baubles. This one is huge! (Lucky Sabine.) My daughter and I enjoyed coloring the versions she sent us so much, that I thought it would fun to create a couple of my own with cute characters instead. Hope you enjoy the coloring or pre-colored version!
You can find the PDFs and corresponding steps below the images.
Print desired template on card stock or heavy paper.
Color to your heart's content.
Cut out on the solid line.
Hole punch the two black bullseyes.
Fold the tabs and glue or tape the long edges together. (It helps to start with the top, rather than the pointed tip. Curling the tab near the tip will also help with assembly.)
Add ribbon through the hole punches and tie inside the cone.
Add your treats.
Glue or tape down three tabs around the circle top.
Hang and or gift to someone special!
