I have seen these cone ornaments on SplitCoast and on a few blogs. I think Kellie Fortin came up with the original idea. Here's how I made mine.
The back layer of cones is made up of 12 pieces of 2" x 2" DSP folded into a cone. I needed some strong adhesive to hold the cones together, so I used some 1/8" sticky tape that I bought from Last Dollar Designs.
I put a small piece of sticky tape in the upper right hand corner. The point of the cone is the upper left corner of the square. The open end of the cone is the bottom right corner of the square. I rolled the top edge and the left edge of the square together to make the seam of the cone.
Using my coluzzle, I cut out a 2 1/2" circle and covered it with adhesive. I've found that when I'm trying to space items out evenly, it's best to break the space down into smaller increments. I started with a cone on the top and then I added one on the bottom, breaking my circle in half. Then I added the left and right cone, breaking my circle into quarters. Then I just had to add two more cones between each of the cones already glued down. That way they all came out evenly spaced and I didn't have to do much adjusting.
I wanted a layer of ribbon between the layers of cones, so I cut four 5 1/2" pieces of grosgrain ribbon. I laid them across my paper-piercing pad and used my paper-piercing tool to poke a hole through all four layers of ribbon. I used a rhinestone brad and threaded it through the hole in the ribbon.
I poked another hole in the middle of all my cones and threaded the brad through to the back of the ornament. I knew that my rhinestone brad would be completely covered up, but I used it because it had such long "legs" that could reach through to the back of the ornament.
The top layer of cones is made from 12 pieces of 1 1/2" squares of DSP. They're folded the same way and layered on top.
The center of my ornament is a simple scalloped circle with a snowflake in the middle. I pierced a hole through the center and added a red brad. The ornament is concave in the middle, so I needed a way to adhere my scalloped circle down. I stacked 5 or 6 dimensionals on top of each other in the center of the ornament, and then stuck my scalloped circle on top. I trimmed the edges of my ribbon and it's done.
I hope the directions makes sense. If not, please leave a comment and I'll try to clarify better.
