Here is one of my design team projects:


Gecko Galz products used for this cone:
Collage (ephemera) sheets
12 Days of Christmas (sheet music);
Angels (angel)
Old Fashioned Christmas (sentiment)
Digital Paper
Tis the Season from Grandma's House digital paper pack
Directions:
Select and print Gecko Galz digital paper onto 8-1/2 x 11 paper (note heavier card stock is a little more difficult to roll and keep together, especially at the point)
Flip paper, return to printer and print cone shape on reverse side.
There are many on-line templates, this one uses:
http://images.marthastewart.com/images/content/web/pdfs/pdf2/gift_cones.pdf
Cut, place double sided tape along edge of long side; roll into cone
Trim cone with lace and flowers, including point at bottom. 
Cut small piece of ribbon and attach inside to top of cone for a handle.  This cone has the hanger in the back portion rather than equidistant from side to side. (I used Stampin' Up ribbon for this as well as over the crochet trim from Really Reasonable Ribbon)

If desired, inside of cone can be layered with tissue paper or other trim.  This cone uses pre-gathered tulle.

Fill cone with treats or décor.  This cone uses glittered boughs and berries from craft stores as well as fussy cut images from Gecko Galz collage sheets: music, angel and sentiment.   
Edge images with Ranger Vintage Photo distress marker for a finished look.
Adhesive used for this cone was a liquid that dries clear.

I'm linking up my holiday cone to Beverly's How Sweet It Is blog for Pink Saturday.

BE SURE TO COME BACK MONDAY DECEMBER 3RD.  I WILL HAVE SOMETHING VERY SPECIAL RELATED TO GECKO GALZ TO SHARE ON MY BLOG ....
