How to make paper cones for serving food.
Paper serving cones make any snack feel a little bit fancier, even if they are inspired by the newspaper to-go containers from fish and chip shops. I like to use them for cocktail parties, because you can easily hold them as you go about your business. If you'd like to learn how to make paper cones, it’s only slightly more complicated than folding a letter. (You still remember how to do that, right?) Just roll, tape and go.
If you’re making cones on the fly, then any square scrap paper will do. No one’s going to judge. But I went out and got origami paper just for this occasion. Not only are the patterns cute, but the near 6″ squares produce a cone that fits nicely in a wine glass (for an even fancier presentation, or for bringing out on a tray).

This is such an easy step that I don’t know what else to say here. Just place the printed-side down and bring the right corner to the middle.
You’re going to bring the left corner to the right, overlapping to form a cone shape. Tape along the edge to secure. Fill with the snack of your choice (I’m partial to sweet potato fries lately) and present the cone in a wine glass or tumbler. Or, just hold and eat.
