Graphic45 Fashionista Paper Cone and Card

This is my second post for today, so scroll down to see the CPC Sketch Tuesday.

I've been admiring all of the paper cones and "tussie mussie" projects I've been seeing around Internet land. I figured it was high time I made one for my own self! At the same time I was trying to think of something for my Graphic45 assignment...something different since the NEW 2011 Design Team is kicking my backside with their creativity! Here is what I ended up with! A paper cone filled with flowers from my front yard!

I do not have a tutorial for you, but if you do a web search on "paper cones" I am sure you will find a tutorial to fit your needs. I think I found this one at the Scor-Pal site. I folded the cone from one sheet of 12x12 paper, then decorated it.

I used some trim that was hiding out in my stash to decorate the triangle part of the cone. I used some Scor-tape to attach the trim to the underside of the triangle. Finally, a use for that dangly trim stuff! The things I have in my stash...it's unreal!

To create the flower embellishment, I cut/embossed flowers with the Spellbinders Paper Arts™ S5-050 Rose Creations die template and stacked them together with a Graphic45 Metal Button.

Here is a photo of the empty cone. Very cool, right?!

I also made a matching card...because...I can! I love this paper and am always happy to cut into it!

It's so rich and pretty! Especially when you use it with pins and the fabbie Spellbinders S4-235 Fancy Tags die template.
