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.
