Start by cutting up your choice of double-sided paper into squares (mine were 1" squares of Holly Berry Bouquet). This ornament takes about 15 squares.

Once your squares are cut, they need to be rolled into a conical shape (I used a paper piercer for this part).


Use a bit of adhesive to hold the cones closed. Make sure the seam is on the same side every time, or your ornament will look a little wonky.

I punched a Red Glimmer Paper shape from the Perfect Pennant Die (my new fave, #123126) to mount my cones, and glam-up the back side of the ornament.



After the cones are all mounted to the wrong side of the glimmer paper, make yourself a lolly to cover the center (mine was made from 8.5" x 3/4" DSP, scored every 1/4"). Hot-glue may be needed to hold that lolly down!

Top off with a button (Holly Berry Bouquet Designer Buttons), add a hanging cord and place on your tree or gift!
