Victorian Style Cone

Hello, it's Ann here today with a sweet project to share with you.  Since wedding and shower season is coming I was inspired to make something with some handmade paper that I would have appreciated myself at my own wedding shower, many many years ago!  By the way I had a lovely lovely shower.

Following the Arnold Grummer Paper Making method I made several different types of sheets of paper and stashed them away for whenever I am inspired to work on a project.  I had made this lovely shade of pink with the dried flowers after the Christmas holidays.  I had some used red tissue and white tissue paper and shredded them and made this paper.  I also added the dried flowers (available through the Arnold Grummer store).

To make a cone similar to this one all you need is a sheet of handmade paper and some glue.  I formed the cone shape and found that using my hot glue gun was the easiest method to get the cone to stay together with our unrolling.  Make sense?


I decorated the cone with some pieces of vintage lace and gold rick rack.  I found the gold rose in my stash of vintage knick backs and the handle was made of an up cycled piece of ribbon from a past gift.

Such cones can be filled with treats and small gifts.  I like to add some filler in the form of shredded vintage music sheets and basket filler.

These are fun and fast to make, once you have the beautiful handmade paper.  I hope I have inspired you to make something pretty.  Thank you for stopping by.  Please visit my blog (http://annmakes.blogspot.com) for more crafty goodness.
