DIY School Gift Cone (Schultüte)
"I have always admired the German tradition of giving children a Schultüte as a gift on their first day of school. As it happens, my niece is starting school, and instead bringing her a boxed present where I also include school supplies, this time I decided to make a paper cone and add up a little bit to the overall excitement. For the paper cone (and its content), I used the following: 1. A cardboard (50 x 60 cm) 2. Gift wrapping paper. 3. Crepe paper 4. Glue (white Elmer's) and sellotape."
