About This Article

To make a funnel or cone from paper, start by tracing a wide triangle onto a sheet of paper. Make sure the two shorter sides are the exact same length, then cut the triangle out. Next, take one of the far corners and roll it into the center so the paper’s edge is touching the middle of the triangle. Hold that in place, then use your other hand to bring in the opposite corner, rolling it overtop so it wraps around the other corner. Fold the loose edges into the cone’s opening, then secure it with a strip of tape along the cone’s inside seam. If you want to learn how to make a paper cone from a disc, keep reading the article!
