Martha Stewart Living, May 2001: Flower Cones How-To. To make flower cones, cut medium-weight paper into a 7-inch square. Use decorative scissors to scallop edge and a pencil to form tip. Secure outer flap of cone with craft glue. Punch six holes, 1 inch apart, beginning at top front center; thread 20-inch length of 1/2-inch-wide ribbon through holes. Tie bow at front, and leave a 7-inch loop at the back.
