I love St. Valentine's Day...it is just what the month of February needs. And for some reason this is the time of year I feel like getting crafty, especially with paper!
So today I made these sweet little gift cones for Mr. Rosemary Lane and the kids.
The items you need to do this craft includes...
4 1/2 feet of 1 1/2 in ribbon
4 1/2 feet of one inch ribbon
color tissue paper
To start, fold your craft paper on the diagonal and make a firm crease. Smoothing out the paper, glue around the perimeter of the paper at about a 1/4 in from the edges so the glue doesn't leak out. Holding the paper with the creased side up, fold the paper on itself to create a conical shape and secure it with a paper clip. (You will have two ears poking up at the top.)
Next glue the outside edge of the paper onto itself so that the cone shape stays in place. This is where you will need your hole puncher. Hold you cone looking at the back side, slip your hole puncher in on a diagonal and punch 2 holes close to one another to create a nice size hole, about 1/3 to 1/2 inch. It will need to be wide enough to thread two pieces of ribbon through. repeat on the opposite side.
Lay your ribbon out on a flat surface and then place one piece on top of the other. Thread both pieces through the hole starting on the inside of the cone through to the back and then thread it through the next hole from back to front.
Making sure your ribbon is even on both sides, tie a bow approximately 5-6 inches above the cone. You may need to fiddle with the ribbon a lttle bit to make it looks nice. Finally tuck in a quarter of a sheet of tissue and you are ready to fill your cone with your gift(s).
Surprising the hubtser and kiddies with gifts of candy for the boys and a pretty little heart necklace for Grace.
Only 9 more days until St. Valentine's day...what do you have ready to shower on your loved ones?
