Paper Cone Ornaments
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.
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!
