Buttoned Cone Bouquet
The corrugated paper of this cone-shaped wrapper protects hands against thorns. To make, cut a sheet of corrugated packing paper and some colored tissue, both measuring about 12 by 18 inches. Using an 18-inch length of waxed twine, sew a largish (1 or more inches in diameter) button to the corrugated paper, halfway down one short side, about 2 inches in from the edge, and leave a foot or so of loose twine. Lay the corrugated paper on your work surface, button-side down. Cover with the colored tissue, leaving about 1 inch of tissue showing above the top edge. Lay the flowers on the papers at the far end opposite the button, and roll them up. Secure the cone by encircling the roll with the loose twine and wrapping it tightly around the button. Try it!
