Cut a piece of parchment, wax paper, or heavy bonded typing paper into a 5- by 7-inch rectangle. Cut it in half on the diagonal.
Hold the triangle midway on the long side (with your left hand if you’re right-handed). With your right hand, twist the bottom point in on itself to form a cone. Leave a generous opening (at least 1½inches wide). Pull the point up to tighten and to form a sharp tip.
Grasping the newly formed cone in your right hand at the open end, twist the tail around the cone, pulling it up toward you to tighten.
