I love paper cones, and have hunted around for some good templates/tutorials.
They are so perfect: any task, from Easter trifles to cones of fresh flowers as wedding favors, to holding cello bags of popcorn for trick-or-treats, to holding chocolates and small gifts on a Christmas tree, to new years crackers, to Valentine parcels.
I made these out of random vintage book pages.
These are inspired by the Lovely Livy of A Field Journal:
Hers are made from vintage sheet music and are longer than these and are oh-so-elegant.
These are easy to make from any text weight paper, and look charming in vintage and patterned papers.
These cones are made from this free printable PDF template:
You can add a fancy edge if you wish ;)
To hold heavier objects, I made these out of cardstock.
The template can be sized to be smaller too.

In this case, gold tinsel.
They can be hung by wire.
They can also be suspended by ribbons or twine. I added a big white carnation to this one. The options are practically endless.
