So I'm sure some of you have seen these before, styrofoam/ribbon, pin the ribbon on etc.....
But what do you do you when you're A)to lazy to go to the store B)Don't have those items on hand C)too impatient to wait until the store opens the next day to pick up supplies going back to A....and are cheap LOL!!!!

Well I tend to get idea and inspiration but used what I have on hand. So to make the cone shape I just used a medium weight bristol board type paper and taped it together in the form of a cone. Cut the bottom so it was straight. Then I went thru my box of random paper scraps and collected paper of the same color and feel (this wen to my pen pal and matches her colors well). Then I cut that all into relatively similar sized strips and just hot glued them on, starting at the bottom and working up. Then attached a big brow bow an voila!

Okay so once again I am completely redoing my pictures. Got tired of photobucket, the only reason I used it was for here so I decided I will just use Craftster's photo uploader. So while I am switching over my photo links will be broken. Message me if there is a post you would like the pics for.
