Wafer texture for the cone


Cut a rectangle of paper or stiff fabric to make the gelato. You can make any size. We used a rectangle 13cm x 6cm.
Fold the rectangle into a concertina. Our finished concertina was 6cm x 1cm.
Staple the concertina in the middle.

Fold the gluey sides together over the staple to make a semi circle fan then turn over and repeat on the other side to make a full circle fan shape


Glue one side then fold the top layer edges together over the staple to create a semi circle fan shape.
Turn over and glue the other side. Fold the top layer over the staple to complete a circular fan shape.

You could also stick the gelato cones on to a blank card to make a pretty greeting card, or make a few and mount in a box frame.
