HOW TO WRAP A GIFT WRAP CONE

Here’s a little trick I learned, originally for making piping bags out of parchment paper.  But it works out to be a fantastic way to make a gift cone out of celephane, too. I like keeping my gift wrap supplies to a minimum, so I like getting one more use out of something in my wrapping closet.

row 1: start with a triangle of celephane, fold up corners as shown
row 2: pull up on corners to tighten the cone and elimate the hole at the point, add a piece of tape

note: If you plan to use this to pipe icing, not as gift wrap, you’ll need to add one more step. After you’ve made the cone, fold down the corners at the rim of the cone and secure them back with tape. It will help the cone hold together better as you pipe.
