I had my eye on this set when I first went thru the new catalog…and that was BEFORE my son announced his engagement! I love the elegance of it…so suitable for MORE than weddings! But, this week’s Challenge #27 over on LateNightStampers is "Here comes the bride"…so I thought it would be fun to make a little wedding accessory! Wouldn’t these be fun along side the pews at the church? The triangle cones are quick and easy to make and I learned how to make it from a patriotic one I received from Laura Lipe using stars. The Hydrangea flowers are from my garden! They are gorgeous this year (my hubby keeps them well fed!) Edit: The creator of this Paper Cone is Kathy McGuire! Here is an excellent tutorial on how to make them! Kathy used 9×9, I used Laura’s directions of 8×8 so I could use 8 1/2 x 11 cardstock.
I started with an 8×8 base of Almost Amethyst cardstock and stamped the large flourish from Wedding Sweet randomly on it with White Craft Ink. Along the flap that is folded outside, I arranged the punched 5-Petal punches and the Boho Blossoms punches in Almost Amethyst, Bashful Blue and Whisper White. In some of the centers I added Clear Rhinestone brads. It is hard to see, but on the back flaps, I added two large Pewter Jumbo Brads and then ran the White Stripe Organdy Ribbon thru them for a hanging loop.
That’s it! Simple, but beautiful (in my humble opinion!)
