Shellye here with a sweet little hanging cone that is sturdy and deep enough to be filled with all sorts of goodies! I really enjoyed working with the Scor-Pal scoring board and found the 6"marking at the bottom very useful for this project. With a couple of different projects shown today, I have limited the cone tutorial here to just wording; I will have a photo tutorial up on my blog showing exactly how I made the cone :)
For the cone, I cut a sheet of the Grey Chevron/Mini Dot down to 8.5" X 11". Placing the sheet onto the Scor-Pal board horizontally, I scored my first line at 5.5". You will use the top portion of this center line as your 'pivot' point for all future marking (I found it best to mark on either side of the center mark so as not to tear the paper).
Coming down to the bottom of the paper, make a small mark at the 2" and 9" lines; pivot your paper (keeping the center lined up with the 6" mark at the top) and bring your 2" mark around to line up with the bottom center mark (which is helpfully labeled for you on the Scor-Pal) and score; do the same for the 9" line.
Next, turn the paper vertically. Make a small mark at the 2.5" and 5.5" lines (on both sides of your paper). Turn your paper back to the horizontal position on the Scor-Pal and score your two lines by pivoting from the center point again. After completing the scores, your paper should very much resemble a paper airplane (which is how I got the idea LOL!) Start folding in your paper from the top until you have the beginnings of an airplane shape. Bring one of the flaps across the other flap until you've formed a cone shape. Apply a good adhesive and attach.
For the front of my cone, I fashioned your basic medallion by pleating two strips of 2.5" X 12" Vintage Bliss Live Simply paper. I scored each strip at 1/2" intervals and then pleated. Glue the ends together to form a circle. Using a 2.5" round punch, cut a circle of paper that you will adhere your medallion to. I find Aleene's Quick Dry Tacky Glue works fast and holds! After your medallion is dry, have fun layering with your favorite journal card and embellishment stickers!
Lastly, I added a ruffled 'cuff' to the front, as well as a bit of doily banner from my stash. For the ruffle, I again scored a 2.5" x 12" strip of Vintage Bliss Be Happy Paper, but at 1/4" marks. I then used a corner rounder to give the upward pleats a softer feel :)
