DIY - Petal Toss Cones

Are you having a hard time deciding what type of toss you want to use at your wedding. One option is rose petals. Having your guests toss rose petals is not only beautiful and elegant but it's also painless! I have to tell you, that new bird friendly toss they sell online is painful!

Today I wanted to show you how to make your own petal toss cones. It's fun and easy and you can add a personal touch to personalize your cones to your wedding theme. Here's what you'll need:

  • Decorative paper of choice (8 1/2" x 11"), you can use colored paper, textured paper or even velum.

  • Scissors (I like to use the decorative paper edge scissors made by Fiskars)

  • Glue gun
Download the template I have supplied. This is in a Word doc format. Then all you have to do is follow the directions on the bottom of the templates. You can change the font and font colors, add a special quote. Print the template and cut around the line using decorative design scissors. You can find the decorative scissors in any scrapbook section of any craft store. Glue the edge of the cones and then just fill with live rose petals. Be sure to tell your florist how many guests you will be having. He or she can recommend how many petal you'll need.

Happy Planning!
