Card — Article — Cone Lampshade

This 325 gsm card is flexible and springs back to shape, so I tried making a variant of the cone lampshade, using a flat card ribbon instead of a dowel rod to tie the ends together.

With some care I think good results could be achieved, but in this case I found it creased too readily.

This joint methods also requires wider slots than this pictured in the first picture; I widened them with a craft knife after laser-cutting the template.
