Hi there, hope you're having a good weekend so far. Its blowing a gale here and bitterly cold .. perfect crafting weather lol. When I first got Sarah Hurley's Tinseltown cd I got totally carried away printing out loads of the gorgeous bps, and wanted to find a project to use them all. I'd seen a few of these papercone wreaths around blogland so I thought I'd have a bash.
I was suprised how easy it was to make, I just cut loads of squares of the bps, punched two edges with a MS topiary punch around the page and then folded them a little and curved the paper round to create a cone. I used a plate to position them and once I'd got enough I cut out a couple of circles of white card and used one as the base. One I'd attached all the cones I stamped the sentiment (from Chocolate Baroque) on a circle of ivory card in brilliance red ink and popped it in the centre. I attached a loop of ivory ribbon at the back and used the other white card circle to cover the back. Easy peasy :-)
Taking the pic was a different matter though, I'm sorry its at a wonky angle - I was holding it with one hand and trying to take the photo with the other lol.
I'm entering this project in the following challenges:

Thanks for popping by today.
