Cut out all pieces. Cut clear to the edge even though the lines don’t print clear to the edge. Spread glue stick  on 1/4 inch on edge of straight side. Fold paper together to make a cone. Overlap top edge no more than 1/2 inch. Seam can go to a point. Glue flower shapes to wood craft stick and then glue candy to center of flower. Glue or tape handle to cone, fill cone with some candy and add flowers.Gift tag can be attached by poking a hole in the tag and attaching a ribbon. Let your imagination run wild. The flowers would be extra cute with some paper embellishments or even glitter! How about adding some leaves to the wood craft stick— you could even write some sweet messages on the leaves.

Hang on your friend’s door and RUN!
