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.
