3D Ice Cream Card - finished cardThis is a sweet little greeting card you can make for that special someone in your life. I made this from scraps around the house on some card stock paper. The cardboard tubing from a roll of toilet paper makes a great ice cream cone because of its curvature.


Total Time: 45 minutes

Yield: 1 card


  • solid craft paper
  • patterned craft paper
  • scissors
  • glue
  • toilet paper tube
  • pen
  • mini pom poms
  • sequins

  1. To make your card base, cut a rectangle from your solid coloured craft paper and fold it in half. Mine was about 8" x 5" when opened.
  2. 3D Ice Cream Card - cut base card from solid color craft paper and fold in half
  3. Cut out a square piece of the patterned craft paper and glue it in the center of the front of the card.

  5. Write out your message on the top and bottom of the card on the solid paper.
