Stampin’ Up!® Demonstrator Karen Robinson | 12 Weeks of Halloween 2019 – Week 11
I have an extra post this week for you to catch up on my 12 Weeks of Halloween series and today I have a couple of quick & easy, not so scary, treat cones to share with you made using the Monster Bash DSP & Wicked Dies.
I have a bit of a soft spot for cones or tussie mussies (depending from where you’re from), they have an old-timey, vintage look that I love and their shape is so different from the usual bags and boxes that I make 🙂
The cones I’ve made for today’s project are reasonably small (approx. 7″ tall at the highest point) and only use a 6″ x 6″ piece of DSP. This means you can make 4 from one 12″ x 12″ piece and is a great way to use up your larger scraps – I’m on a big use it or lose it kick at the moment 😉
To create my embellishment I just had to use the awesome “wicked” word from the Wicked Dies and die cut it from Silver and black (retired) Glimmer paper for a little shimmer and shine.
I layered my word onto a piece of Soft Suede cardstock – punched out with the Starburst Punch and stamped with the Crackle Paint background for some extra texture and added the swirly stars in Terracotta Tile from the Stitched Stars Dies behind.
Attaching straight things to curved things is always a little tricky so I decided a couple of carefully placed staples would keep everything secure. They’re covered with one of the Monster Bash Enamel Shapes & a glittery spider and I added one more spider little further down as a final touch 🙂
Here’s the How To:
DSP: 6″ x 6″
- Use a saucer or small plate to create a curve on one diagonal edge (optional)
- Trim 1/2″ – 3/4″ from the bottom corner that is going to form the point (make sure if you’re using directional paper that it’s going the right way first) and then run your bone folder over the paper both ways to encourage it to curl.
- I applied Tear and Tape to the outside edge only and shaped the cone a couple of times till I was happy with it and then while it was in the cones shape removed the backing and adhered it down.
- When shaping the cone I just focused on rolling the tip tight and round and left the top to form as it pleased.
- Punch holes and adhere hanger before attaching embellishments
- Embellish as desired
These were such a fun project to make and would be a great way to hang a few treats on a door knob or over the back of a chair and what I like the most is that even though they’re quick and easy they look a little extravagant and who doesn’t want that from time-to-time 😉
