DIY Confetti Cones

I just love these DIY confetti cones from Celebrations!

They come with 25 sheets of parchment-style paper, personalised with your initials, plus 25 gold bow seals, and enough sun-dried rose petals to fill them as shown in the picture below.

Complete with simple instructions and a specially-designed white dispensing box to ensure they don't fall over whilst waiting to be handed to your guests - a special insert holds the cones in place.

What a bargain at £19.95 for a box of 25! Personalisation alone is usually pretty pricey so this is a great buy!
