Schultüte (School Cone)

Schultüte

"When children in Germany set off for their first day in school upon entering first grade, their parents and/or grandparents present them with a big cardboard cone, prettily decorated and filled with toys, chocolate, candies, school supplies, and various other goodies. It is given to children to make this anxiously awaited first day of school a little bit sweeter." (wikipedia.com)

This is my daughters Schultüte and I need to get this decorated tonight! Any creative ideas? I´d rather fill my moleskines. ;)

Update: Here are the results.

Boy... I just completed it and I´m sure she´ll like it. It is 2am in the morning and I have to get up at 6am, so I´m off to bed. Will post pictures tomorrow.
GOOD NIGHT!
