Origami Ice Cream Cone step-by-step instruction
You will need two identical pieces of square paper. They should be different in color, so you could distinguish a cone from a scoop of ice cream.
Let’s fold a cone
Take one piece of square paper and fold it in half to create a triangle.
Then fold it again to define the middle of triangle.
Unfold the small triangle, and align the right side to the middle fold.
Do the same with the left side.
We do not need these upper sticking out corners, so we will hide them in the middle. For that to happen, open the sides slightly and bend the corners inward.
Close the sides again, flip the figure over and draw with a felt pen intersecting lines imitating a waffle structure. Your con is ready.
Let’s fold a scoop of origami ice cream
Take the second piece of square paper and fold it in half.
Now we need to determine the middle, but the bend should not be visible. Therefore, fold the paper very slightly, pressing it easily only on the top.
Fold the side corners to the marked middle.
Fold the side corners inward.
Flip it to the other side: the ice cream scoop is ready.
Place it on the waffle cone with a sharp corner down.
By the way, you can make several scoops for your ice cream. To do this, repeat all the previous steps to fold more scoops, and then bend the bottom corners inward.
Thus, you will get a small pocket that allows placing the scoops on top of each other.
Your origami ice cream cone is ready. It could be in different colors, as well as have a various paper fillers such as chocolate chips.
