I almost forgot to show you today's project - a petal cone box that I demo'd at Kim's Christmas workshop in November. These fun boxes are really easy to make for lots of different occasions, but a little tricky to show clearly in one pic apparently.
The box is really quick to make using the petal cone die. The die includes the petal cone shape, a half circle scallop & a flag. Here's a pic of the die.
To make the box, I simply cut 2 cone shapes in white, which I wheeled in riding hood red with the Sparkle Jumbo wheel) & cut 2 half scallop circles in riding hood red. To assemble the box, fold & flatten the score lines made by the die & run a strip of sticky strip down both flaps & join together. Attach the half scallops underneath 2 opposite petals & you're done. I decorated my box with some Christmas baubles & a Merry Christmas sentiment from the Delightful Decorations stamp set (in lucky limeade & riding hood red). The box holds quite a lot - I think I fitted around 24 Darrell Lea jingle balls in mine - yum!
I also took a quicker version of the box to show the ladies, which was also wheeled with the Sparkle wheel. I used a scallop sentiment from Perfect Punches to decorate with some lucky limeade ruffled ribbon.
Well, that took longer to write than to actually make the box, so I'd better leave it there. If you have any questions or just want to say hello, just leave a comment.
Thanks heaps for visiting. I think I only have 2 more Christmas items to show - 1 of which also uses the petal cone die, so hopefully I'll be back soon.
Inky wishes, Di
