Flat pattern cuts applied onto a cone?

I've got a cone that I need to add a series of holes to. The easiest (and from what I've seen, only) way to add these holes to the model is after the cone's been flat patterned. Is there some way to recreate the cone shape afterwards? I need to be able to show the model as a cone with the holes added to it.

 

The cone, as made with a revolved base.
