Stampin' N' Scrappin' Tutorial:Paper Cones

This is my turn at Stampin' N' Scrappin' for a tutorial and I decided to do Paper Cones for May day. I thought that being May Day is fast approaching that these paper cones would work great for May Day baskets for friends and loved ones. I put a little bit of elegance in them by using more fancy papers and decorations.

Starting with a 12x12 pattern paper, Trace a half circle on the opposite side of the design.
(I used a plate for my template.)

Cut out the half circle then mark the center of the straight side.

Trim approximately 1/4 of the half circle. ( Cut from center out)
Using double sided tape, tape the one straight side on none pattern side. Flip paper over and add a small piece of tape to the top of the pattern side.Roll paper into a cone shape pattern side out and tape together. (may want to roll first to shape cone)
Using punches, laces. etc. cut an 11" strip. Using strong adhesives such as double sided tape, glue dots etc., add adhesive to top of strip. (Glue Dots worked best for me)
Line up strip along top of cone and adhere and wrap around cone. (bottom of strip will not lay flat)If using a handle, add another 11" strip by securing each end with adhesive to the inside of top of cone.Embellish your cone with: ribbon, brads, jewels, etc.
Here are a few close up shots of these cones.
