Paper Cone Ornaments

I cut 6 inch squares of Natural Composition Specialty Designer Paper (126917) from Stampin' Up! for these rolled cone ornaments. The designs are embossed, so I sponged Soft Suede ink all over for contrast. Then, I sprayed the squares with Shimmer mist (see recipe below) and let them dry completely.

This paper is more like card stock, so I rolled the wrong side against the edge of my desk to get it to curl, making it easier to roll into a cone. For a pretty lining, I cut triangles from 6 inch squares of the Neutrals Collection Designer Series Paper Stack (117157) and adhered them to the inside of the open end of the square. Then, I used TomBow Multi-purpose liquid adhesive (110755) to glue the cones closed.

Punch 2 holes in the top. Tie a hanging loop in 15-20 in. of ribbon, depending on whether you want to tie a bow. Thread the ends of the ribbon through the holes from the back and tie in the front. Embellish the cones, fill them with candy and hang on the tree.

Shimmer Mist
In a small spray bottle, combine 2 oz. 70% Rubbing Alcohol and 1/2 Teaspoon Shimmer paint. (I used Champagne Shimmer paint 116806) Shake well before using.
Add more paint for more shimmer!
