To make the paper cones, select and print out your fun cone paper. Cut the paper into an 8″ x 8″ square. Roll the paper into a cone with the paper on the diagonal. Use the bottom point as the point of the cone.
If you have decorative scissors use them to cut the paper.
Hot glue the seam shut.
Tissue paper adds some pretty color and fluff to the arrangement. And it makes just a few flowers look full and pretty!
Cut out colorful squares from the tissue. Pinch the center of the paper squares and give it a turn to make a little tissue paper
Keep the flowers fresh by cutting the stems at a 45% angle and sandwiching the stems between paper towels that have been soaked in a floral food solution. Remember to cut the flowers to the size of the cone.
The paper towels holding the stems of the flowers are wrapped securely in plastic wrap.
Slip the flowers into the cone and add the tissue paper puffs.
Tie a ribbon around the cone and tie with a bow. Put a tiny dot of hot glue under the center of the bow to hold it in place.
Or hot glue ribbon to either side of the cone and hang the cone to a door handle.
Easy-peasy! Why not make a few and deliver them to the wonderful women in your life?
