I was in a Christmas mood the other day, now that around here the days are getting a bit cooler and I think summer is winding down for us in the North. I'm still hoping for a few more nice hot days before the snow flies. Today's project has me thinking forward to Christmas.
I decided to make little four sided paper cone to fill with treats. I have a template here for you to try. Just cut off the top handles if you don't want handles, or want to add your own...
Trace and cut out, then score along the lines and fold.
Run a tape runner down the small flap and stick together to form the box.
Decorate how ever you like. I've used Crafty Secrets CD Creating with Vintage Christmas and used the Christmas Tags and die cut out the Santa's with a scalloped circle. The great sentiment is from the Christmas Memories stickers which I tend to hoard. And the Merry Christmas stamp is from the postcard Christmas stamp. With all the great digital stamp sets you could add them directly to your image before printing them out:)
A clay frame( thanks to my guy for stock piling them for me and making a bunch) some hand crocheted snowflakes and that cute little bottle brush tree with some pretty trims and they are all ready for treats. I'd love to scale down the size and make this into an advent calendar... complete with numbers and a little scroll inside.. how darling would that look hanging in an old chippy frame.... my gears are turning!
I'm off to see what the other DT ladies have created. Be sure to join our monthly Linky Party and link up your creations using Crafty Secrets products for a chance to win a great prize:)
