Paper Crafting Tool Tips

My brain is still whirring with all the ideas presented at Convention. So many fun things, new twists and ideas to share with you!

How many of you have made a paper cone? I bet when you were in elementary school you made one around Mother's Day, put flowers inside, and ran home from the bus stop to present to your mom. Perhaps you made one last Christmas and filled with treats for your neighbor. Well, read on and see a new twist for a great party favor or gift packaging.

To make the cone, take a piece of 6″ x6″ patterned paper

(Stampin' Up's Designer Series Paper works great for this and right now you can purchase three and get another one free…great time to stock up so you're ready to make all the fun projects I'll be showing).

and fold into a cone. Using your Paper Trimmer or Scoring Tool, make a score line at the base of the triangular part at the top of the cone so you can fold it over. In this example, a fun flower embellishment and tag is attached to the front to “hide” the gift inside, rather than have it showing from an “open” cone.

Notice the fun gold shimmer on the button? This is one of our Very Vintage Designer Buttons, tapped onto a VersaMark Pad, dipped into Gold Embossing Powder and then heated until the powder melts. Such an easy way to “step up” a project!

Thanks for stopping by and see you next time!
