More Victorian Cones

Cones were often seen on Victorian era Christmas trees, full of glittery decor items or filled with candy and toys for children.

Here's a quick and easy project for you that will give you a creative edge in your holiday decorating: another cone design, this one using Soho Subway DSP:

  • This was another project completed at the Creative Escapes retreat a couple of weeks ago.
  •  It features a rolled flower made with the pattern on the flip side of the print DSP.  I punched out a large scallop circle and cut it in a spiral shape until I reached the center.
  • I rolled it up starting at the outside edge and rolling until I reached the center.  A quilling tool makes this super easy.
  • A few glue dots on the last of the spiral creates a base to adhere the rolled flower to.  An alternative to this is a Jumbo Sticky Round, cut to the right diameter.

  • I added a smaller scallop circle underneath the rolled flower.
  • Some sponging and some Cherry Cobbler Chevron Ribbon complete this easy project.  
  •  Here's a link to get the template for the cone. It's easy to roll into the right shape and Sticky Strip keeps it in place!
There you are!  Easy Peasy!  Go crazy!!
