  13. Tip To Present This Gift... Punch holes on opposite sides of the cone, just below the rim. Punch another hole in the tip. Cut a length of beaded wire for the handle. Thread bead ends through punched holes, twisting ends to secure. Make a small tassel out of a 16-inch length of beads, wrapping into 2-inch-long loops. Tie at the top with another piece of beaded wire. Tie onto the cone through the punched hole in the cones tip.
  14. Tip Also try this... Use cone-shape paper drinking cups in the same way, decorating the outside with stickers in desired colors and shapes.
  15. Note To present this gift you will need:Paper punch, flexible plastic cone (available in the doll-making supply area of crafts stores), scissors, and colored beaded wire.
