All Things Stampin' Up! Blog Hop: December

It's time for another All Things Stampin' Up! Blog Hop!  This time we have the whole crew!  You may have come from Shellie's blog.  Welcome to those of you who are new to here.  The theme this month is All About December Holidays.  I decided to use the Petal Cone die, and show you a couple of different projects with it.
This was super simple.  Cut two pieces, glue the side flaps together, and you have a cone, or a holiday tree.  With this particular piece of DSP, I meant to cut the paper with the ornaments hanging right side up.  But in my haste of wanting to make this and show it off, my head was thinking wrong.  Oops.  Learn from my mistake: when making a cone or tree, the half circles are on the BOTTOM.  So when you cut your paper, if you want it to orient a certain way, make sure you turn your paper around.  Anyways, since I am loving making these rosettes with our Simply Scored board, I made another quick one to put on the top.  Topped off with a piece of snowflake from the Northern Frost strip die and Silver Glimmer paper.

Oh, you probably want to know how I made the little punch thing in the middle.  It's done with the Decorative Label punch.  I'll do a pictorial for you tomorrow. :)

This cute little thing can be a multi-tasker, especially when you are having guests over for the holidays.  You can use it as a place card first.  Then as your guests are finished with the fabulous meal you have served, they can take the tree and open from the bottom to find treats inside!  Yup, just fill the cone with some more yummies and close the half circle flaps.
The second thing I made for this Hop is a treat holder.  I cut just one piece from the Petal Cone die.  Glued the side flap down.  And cut a scalloped half circle with card stock from the same die.  I also embossed the cardstock with Northern Flurries embossing folder.  'Cause, you know, plain cardstock is just, well, so boring! LOL.

My Supplies List (all supplies and images by Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted):
Stamp Set(s): NONE!

I really love the tree idea. What a great favor for a party and of course filled with candy who could resist.
