DIY Petal Cones-need advice!

Hi Ladies,


I am planning on making my own Petal Cones for the reception to hold rose petals to be thrown when we walk down the aisle. Anyone have advice on how to make these? I'm not super crafty, so I appreciate any tips and tricks.


 


Thanks


-Rachel

i think cardstock may be to "heavy" to wrap around...


i'd do "stiffer" paper than normal "text" paper tho


i've also seen round doilies used ;-)  no measuring!   =)

i agree with dirty...cardstock is probably too stiff.
