Today’s tutorial on Splitcoaststampers is on how to make a paper cone. They are fun and versatile. You can use them as a treat bag or you can turn them around and use them as a party hat or base for a doll. What’s not to like, right?
For my sample I used the new Jumbo Scallop Petite Borderabilities. Splitcoaststampers is posting a review on the new wide scallop dies Spellbinders came out with. I received these dies to play with. I LOVE Spellbinder dies, this one was no exception!
The paper used for this cone is from the Laundry Line from My Mind’s Eye. I cut and embossed two 11″ strips of Chocolate Chip cardstock with the Spellbinders Borderabilities. I used the double scallop one for the cone handle, the single one as a trim for the cone.
The sentiment is from JustRite’s Romantic Sentiments . It was stamped in Fired Brick Distress ink and sponged with Tattered Rose ink. The border was stamped in Walnut Stain Distress ink and is from as the Decorative Round Borders. The sentiment and border as well as the scalloped circle behind it were cut and embossed with the Circle Nestabilities.
The flower is a little sneak peek of Tim Holtz’s Flower Tattered Floral Die. Daisy from Eclectic Paperie gave my a few cut outs when I met her at the CHA. I can’t wait to own that die!!! The flower cut-outs were sponged with Fired Brick Distress ink, layered and topped with a Making Memories Brad. Silk May Arts ribbon finishes off my cone.
