Orange Paper Practice Cone Tutorial


I'm back with a follow-up post on how I made my magnetic game practice cones. I'm sure with some practice one could use larger circle's and make these to use as party favors or as decorations for a Bob the Builder Birthday party!

Supplies
1 3/8 inch circle punch
1/2 inch circle punch
7/8 inch circle punch
cardstock of choice
Gum Paste Glue (BookBinding type glue)
Quick Drying White glue (not shown)
Step 1:
Punch a 1/2 inch circle in your paper. Using the back side of your 1 3/8 inch punch as a window, center the 1/2 inch hole in the center and punch out.

Punch a 7/8 inch circle and set aside.
Step 2:
Cut a small piece out of the ring.
Step 3:
Using the blunt edge of scissors gently curl the ring.
Step 4:
Pinch one of the cut edge of the ring and twist it into a tight spiral. When you release it the twist will become more loose.

Step 5:
Apply white glue to the outer cut edge and then tighten the spiral as you adhere the outer edge.

TIP: Use the 7/8-inch circle as a guide to the size of the spiral's base.

Step 6:
Apply white glue from the inside of the spiral's base to the outer edge careful not to get too much around the outside.

Step 7:
Press the spiral base down on the 7/8 inch circle and tap to start gravity's work on the glue. Set aside and repeat these steps until you have the amount of practice cones you need.

Practice drill is all set up and ready to go!
