Victorian Paper Cone By Renea

The following is a Victorian Paper Cone that I created using my gorgeous Berry71Bleu Tag.

Here you can see the details of the back of the cone.

Marivic's Tags make creating something beautiful a breeze. They are wonderful all by themselves, and are so inspiring for creating those special projects!!

If you would like to create one of these Victorian Paper Cones of your own, here is a short tutorial on how to get the base shape. I actually made a template first, which allows me to create the cone without having to fold and leave a crease in my decorative paper. Once the template is created, you can save it and use it over and over again.

Step One:
Take a square piece of cardstock. (I used a 12 x 12, but you can make your cone any size you would like.

Step Two: 
Fold the square, diagonally to form a triangle.

Step Three:
Take a pencil and starting at the shortest corner draw a rounded top.

Step Four:
Cut off the top and you now have your template.

Step Five: 
Open up template, lay it onto your pattern paper. Using a pencil trace the shape onto your pattern paper.

Step Six:
Cut out your shape from the patterned paper.

Step Seven:
Curl your cone until one edge over laps the other, and using a hot glue gun, run a lined down the under side, and then press the top side down sealing the edge.

You now have a cone that is ready to decorate.

I hope that you get inspired along the hop to create something beautiful for yourself!!
