cone leakage

This has become increasingly frustrating for me. Hopefully the carrot
bags I've just received will solve it but I'm not sure.

I use cones to apply henna. I love the cones. I get great lines and
they're so much easier to control. My problem is that my cones seem
to be constantly leaking at the seams. Anyone have any suggestions? I
use freezer bags and mounds of scotch tape and I still end up with
leakage. I also use terped paste so by the time I notice the leakage,
my right hand ends up with lovely little puddles and blotches.

I'm pretty sure the carrot bags will stop the leakage from the sides
and seams but I must be doing something wrong when I'm rolling up the
top or maybe I'm squeezing the cone improperly. What I do is fold
over the two sides of the top of the cone and tape them. Then I very
tightly roll the top down and tape that. The top is usually what
leaks the most. I'm usually squeezing the cone from the top. Is there
another way I should be folding it?

Thanks in advance! -Kelly
