Ta Da...Presenting a Cone Tutorial

I have been looking forward to doing this and I really hope you all enjoy

For this project you will need: 
1.     a full sheet of card stock
 2.    glue..I use Mod Podge
3.     Scotch tape
4.    Masking tape
5.     Whatever you want to cover the cone.
I am using pages from a hymnal for this

 Take the sheet of card stock and roll it from
a bottom corner to form the cone. You will have
some excess at the top, but when you have the size
you want tape the edge in place with scotch tape.
(If you want a heavier cone, you can glue 2 or more pages of card stock together)  

 Trim some of the excess from around the top of
the cone,  Now, fold the top to the inside to form
an edge.  You can now use the masking tape to seal the
raw edge of the card stock.  This will be the back
of your cone.
 When using the hymnal pages, I pick out what pages
I want to use and tear the edges of all the pages. I like
the way this looks when grungied up.  Begin gluing the
pages starting at the top in the back of the cone.  Place
the page high enough on the cone so that you have
an excess to fold to the inside. 

When you have the cone covered you will glue
your front (focus) page in the position you want.
 If you have some of the point that isn’t covered, just
tear a strip from one of the pages, wrap it around
the cone and trim off the excess.  You may want to
shape the point with your fingers.
 You are ready to completely cover the cone with a
good coat of glue.  I glue the inside, let it dry and
then finish up the outside.
 Alrighty, now you have your cone ready for your personal,
finishing touches.  I will grubby this one with a coffee
and vanilla mixture, sprinkle on some mica flakes and
fill with Christmas-y stuff.

 Now, I have a favor…I want you to critique this tutorial so
I will know what I need to change when doing future
tutorials.  And, please tell all your blogging buddies
that might want to make a cone about this tutorial…I have
a plan for the future that will only work if you make and
decorate a cone!! 

I am really looking forward to hearing from you!
