Tiny Easter Candy Cones

I have been in love with the idea of giving a Schultüte (or German school cone) since I came across them online. Traditionally they are a big cardboard cone, prettily decorated and filled with toys, chocolate, candies, school supplies, and various other goodies. It is given to children to make this anxiously awaited first day of school a little bit sweeter. When I came across tiny cones I thought I would decorate some, add some candy, and use them in my white elephant easter basket for Crafternoon.
I found the mini cones here, as well as the scrap images. This website has so many fun scrap images!
All I did was create a little rosette with crepe paper streamers I had on hand, I used hot glue to hold the center in place, and then trimmed the edge so the rosette was smaller. I then used a pair of pinking shears on some metallic streamers I have and glued that in the center of the rosette to help cover the hot glue blob.
Then I picked a little scrap image, trimmed it, and glued that on too. Once the whole thing was glued onto a cone I filled each with some candy and tied the top with a ribbon. Super fast and I think they turned out really cute.
