12 Days of Christmas Ideas # 11
Here is a paper cone that can be used as an ornament for the tree or a small treat holder. The idea for this came from Kimberly Van Diepen. She had made up several for Halloween.
The cone itself is just a 6x6 piece of Designer Series paper that you cut in half to make two triangles. Then you add the fun ribbon treatment across the top middle. You will need sticky strip for this and I used 5/8 satin ribbon. You fold the ribbon up and down over the sticky strip as neat or messy as you want. You can finish off the end with a glue dot or two. Then you add sticky strip down the back edge and fold the paper into the cone shape.
I kept the sentiment on the front simple and used a bunch of punches. I also added a glimmer brad through the word window punch in the back to hang my piece of linen thread.
