Default ice cream cone help

I purchased the instructions for the ice cream cone and i cannot figure out how to do it.. i understand everything until the point where i have to knot it to keep it in the ball shape... i have no clue how to make that knot because no matter what i try, the whole thing becomes loose and opens up.. can anyone offer me any advice? thoughts?what do you do? thanks!

Have you emailed the person that made the instructions. I would email them directly as they are usually the best help.

Not sure whose instructions you purchased but what I do it push the knot up with my finger from the back to make it round then wrap one end of the ribbon around and around and glue it down on the back and do the same to the other

ETA pics

Work from the roll of ribbon


nice big loop to start (im using 7/8")


nice point and even on the knot before tightening it


use the pressure of your index finger to keep the nice even shape and to make it round

after you make that round, cut off leaving about 1-2" of extra ribbon so you have plenty for the next step


turn it over and twist and fold the twist over the back of the knot


very hot hot hot hot melt glue between the part you twisted and the back of the knot (my glue gun melts at 380 degrees F) then cut off and heat seal. You might have to hold it there a bit til the glue cools or it will pop right back up. Also, if your glue isnt hot enough it will pop back up


twist the other side and fold over as before behind the knot


glue between the first twist and the new twist


Cut excess ribbon and heat seal


Voila, FINISHED icecream scoop
