A Cone for Christmas



This is a project I finished for each family member for Christmas and hung them on our tree. They are cones that I filled with goodies. Everyone loved them, and they were pretty easy to make.

Supplies

Paper - Riding Hood Red, Belle Rose Designer Series Paper
Ink - Kiwi Kiss, Riding Hood Red
Stamps - Lovely Letters
Accessories - Pennant die, Pretties kit, Whisper White taffeta ribbon, Kiwi Kiss ribbon, Large eyelets, Crop-a-dile, 1 3/4 circle punch, Tombow, Library clips.

Process
  1. Cut 2 large pennants with Riding Hood Red Card stock
  2. Cut 2 small pennant with Bella Rose Designer Series Paper
  3. Trim scallops on one of the small pennants
  4. Glue them together with different sides showing to take advantage of two sided patterns.
  5. Using a 1 " strip of coordinating Bella Rose Designer Series Paper cut out the scallops of the large pennant 3 times.
  6. Adhere to top and side edges on pennant.
  7. Using pretties kit make a dangling ornament a the bottom and tie a bow using whisper white taffeta ribbon to shaft of the ornament embed at the bottom of cone and glue down.
  8. Glue together the two Riding hood Red large pennants along the scalloped edge with Tombow. I use the library clips to hold them together
  9. Stamp a letter and vines using stamps from Lovely letters set and Kiwi Kiss, Riding Hood Red ink on Whisper white Card stock
  10. Punch out with 1 3/4 circle punch
  11. Adhere stamped image on top of one of the scallops cut from the pennant die.
  12. Adhere to center of small Pennant and then adhere small pennant to large pennant.
  13. Using Crop-a-dile punch holes and set two large eyelets at the top of the pennant .
  14. Thread Kiwi Kiss ribbon and knot on either of cone.
  15. Tie whisper white ribbon at the top to form a loop
