2 Yummy | Ice Cream Truck

My girls freak out each time they hear the ice cream truck music blaring through the neighborhood. They stop everything they are doing to collect their money for a delicious treat. And I remember doing the same thing when I was their age! How to: 

  • Download the ice cream SVG cutting file I created HERE.  Cut it out of white cardstock.  
  • Use your cuts to cut around the papers you want to show through the page, cutting about 1/4" larger so you can adhere them to the back of the cone.  
  • Once everything is in place, add some water color around the outside of the cone to make it pop on the page.  
  • You may even consider doing this step before you add the pattern paper.  
  • Add a few embellishments on the cone and don't forget the cherry on top! 
  • Layer elements (tag, spoon, washi tape, vellum under your photo. 
  • Add your photo on top, using foam dots.  
  • Lastly add your title and other embellishments.

So...what do you think? Leave me a note to let me know.  Visit me on the American Crafts blog too.
