It is so easy to make your own DIY ice cream cone wrappers and other party staples with the We R Memory Keepers Party Board! This little tool is my new favorite thing, and I’m really excited to share it with you all today. I will show you how to use the board to customize your perfect party, plus I have a free download for some adorable ice cream themed papers!
In addition to DIY ice cream cone wrappers, The Party Board allows you to make party hats, cupcake wrappers, treat pouches, and more. It’s really easy to use, and I know I will be using it for lots of parties in the future. It makes it super easy for you to incorporate your party’s theme and colors into every little detail.

Step One. Trim Paper to Size.
The board comes with a booklet with instructions for each item, but if you happen to misplace it, no worries, the board has brief instructions for each project right on the board. For an ice cream cone wrapper, it tells us to start with a piece of paper 5″x5″ and to cut along C6 and C1.
For my ice cream cone wrappers, I used my printable paper designs, which have an ice cream theme. I trimmed my paper down to 5″x5″ squares using a paper trimmer.
Step Two. Cut Along Guides.
Line your paper up in the corner of the board along the guides. The board tells us to cut along C6 and C1, so first find guide C (there are three guides included with the board, and they are each labeled with a letter in the center). Next, place the C guide onto peg 6. Both the board and the guide are labeled with numbers to ensure you get your guide in the right place. Finally, place the blade in the guide and make the cut.
Move the guide down to peg 1 and repeat.
And that’s it! Your wrapper is cut in two easy movements!
Step Three. Glue Wrapper Together.
Finally use some adhesive along one edge of the cone to form the wrapper. I used a permanent tape roller and that worked great.
Slip your wrapper onto your cones and you are ready to party!
