Halloween Candy Cone

I used a 8" x 8" piece of My Minds Eye Halloween paper and made a cone. I started the cone on one corner of the square, wisting it around a pencil. Make sure you don't twist it to tight you want to be able to get your candy in it. I held it together and used my Quick Dry glue to glue it together. I then used two way tape and added my black ribbon to the top and then intertwined the orange sheer through the top of the black ribbon. I punched two small holes using a 1/8" punch on each side of the cone and added some wire for the handle that I twisted around a pencil. Once the handle is in place I added the beads and tie the orange ribbon. The scallop circle is really easy to make. Punch two 1 1/4" circles (or the size you will need for the center of the scallop, this will always depend on the size of the scallopyou are making). For this one cut a strip of paper that is 1" x 12" and do an accordion fold every 1/16" (the closer the fold the better I think it looks). Once you have it completely folded glue the two ends together. (I think a low temp heat gun or two way sticky tape is the easy way to adhere it to one of your pre-cut circles.) Once you get the ends glued push it down on to the pre-glued circle and hold it into place. Add the second circle to the top in the same manner. Decorate the outside to go with your occasion, mine is for Halloween.
I added a embellishment from the Making Memories Blackbird Brads and did some stitching using a Black Zig pen to my circle before I adhered it to the cone. I used glue dots to stick my accordian folded circle to the front of the cone. I placed some tulle in the inside of my cone and filled it with my candy, but you can use cellophane bags as well. Make sure to tie the tulle closed at the top so you candy doesn't fall out.
