I tried soaking the cone in water like I saw on Pinterest, but that didn't work. The cone just got slimy and
still didn't bend. I had the idea of putting the cone in the microwave to see if it would soften up and - BINGO it worked. I found that 20 seconds on high was just right for being able to bend the end of the cone. After shaping the end the way you want, you have to hold it in place until it cools and gets hard again.
I finished them off with a gift tag that I found HERE - free printable. They turned out so cute and I look forward to giving them to a few special people!
