Cone Ornament!


This morning while blog hopping I came across this really amazing cone ornament on Dannie's blog! (http://danniesdesigns.typepad.com/) I thought it was so pretty so I set out to make one of my own! I went through my stash and discovered that I have no patterned Christmas paper left, so I made my own! I sponged Very Vanilla front and back and cut it into the 24 necessary squares. In hindsight I think that the patterned paper would work better because it is thinner. I was pretty darn happy with the finished project though! Isn't it pretty??!!! Dannie did a great job with instructions on her blog...check it out! I am going to try a few more with some patterned papers.

Recipe:
Paper: SU! Very Vanilla and Old Olive
Ink: Wild Wasabi, Cranberry Crisp, Handsome Hunter, More Mustard and Real Red
Stamps: Perfect Presentation
Extras: Spiral Punch, Circle Punch, and brads
