Carnation Cones


These carnation cones from the February issue of Martha Stewart Living are so simple and sweet.  They have to be about the cutest party favor or small token of friendship I've ever seen!  They're so easy to make - just print off the template here, twist into the shape of a cone and secure the stem of a carnation inside!  

PS - these remind me of a construction paper flower bouquet that my bff made me one year.  I still have it even though it's been smushed in a box during multiple moves since she gave it to me!

how adorable. I remember seeing a piece (or perhaps reading it) about carnations by Martha and I gained a whole new respect and love for them :)

It's so funny, I used to HATE carnations, but I keep seeing them in arrangements like this, and I've completely changed my mind. These are too cute.

I swear this issue of Martha is my absolute favorite ever. I was turning down nearly every page to save when I finally gave up & vowed to keep the thing intact. How fabulous were the chocolate recipes?? Specifically a white chocolate, coconut, rum cocoa or ice pop - to die!!
