This DIY post will be a 2 part blog post. Part 1 we will run through how to make our "Eyes See Love, Snacks Cones". Yes! We are in love with eye patterns - we have illustrated some googly eyes and hearts πŸ‘€β€οΈ for this paper cone pattern - C-U-T-E-ness. Part 2 of the tutorial, we will be making some matching "SODArling , SODAteable SODA pop" DIY fizzy drinks labels. So, love, here we go!

1. Tools and Ingredients

  • Scissors
  • Prepared snacks such as microwave pop corn ( we chose pop corn, other alternative snacks such as fries, nuts, crisps, fish fingers, chicken nuggets are all good alternatives too - #nom 🍿🍟πŸͺπŸ«πŸ˜‹ )
  • Stapler
  • A4 paper to print "Eyes See Love Snack Cones" sheet which can be downloaded via this link

2. Print "Eyes See Love Snack Cones" sheet from the downloaded file. Each sheet yields 2 cones. However, if you decide to "supersize me" it, it's also possible to upsize and use one sheet per cone. 

3. Trim away the white boarders, and fold the sheet in half.

As it is a stay in date, ( we love stay in dates especially during the cold winters ) so that we can be in our pjs and completely be in the most chilled out state.  We definitely love to have a movie on πŸ€“πŸŽ¬ here's our top picks for this Valentine's / Galentine's :

  • Leap Year  ( this year is a leap year so may be an apt film to watch )
  • The Artist
  • While You Were Sleeping
  • P.S. I love you
