Katie shows us how to make Martha Stewart's pretty flower cone for your home or office!
This pretty flower cone adds a splash of color to your wall.
1. Sheet of medium weight scrapbook paper
2. Ribbon (approximately 1/2” thick)
3. Hole puncher
4. Hot glue gun with glue sticks
5. Fake bouquet of flowers
6. Scalloped scissors for a prettier edge. I bought mine for $2 from Wal-Mart, but you don’t see the edges very well, so feel free to skip this step.
Cut a 9”x9” square from your scrapbook paper. If desired, use scalloped scissors to make a wavy pattern along the edges.
Orient square as shown in picture. You will be moving corners 2 and 4 inward. Finagle the paper. There’s no exact science, just keep moving the paper around until you achieve the cone shape. The star on the picture is where my corner 2 ended up. You can bend the paper a bit to help the cone shape “stick” so that the paper is not sliding all over the place. Have someone hold the shape while you glue. Be patient and take your time.
Hole punch 6 holes. Refer to the O’s on the picture. Cut a 18” strand of ribbon. Loop the ribbon through the holes. Make sure you leave a long enough loop at the top to hang the cone. Tuck the ends into the cone. It does not matter where the ribbon begins or ends in your hole line. Place flowers in cone. Hang with a small nail.
