Today's stampin' duos feature my favorite motif – vintage!  I've created a Christmas ornament and coordinating gift card holder from my favorite designer series papers – Typeset.  I'll not only show you how to make the paper cone ornament but how to easily create gift card holder counterpart. I've added a flower, ribbon and of course, a pearl!

I've included pictures and a highlight of the instructions below for easy reference. Remember, you can click on the pictures to enlarge them on your screen.


Duo Week 45 1

Christmas Cone Ornament

  • Cut designer paper 8"x8". Cut diagonally to create a triangle.
  • Create cone shape by watching my video instructions – visual is the easiest way to learn.
  • Use Sticky Strip to create the cone.
  • I used 10" of the Venetian Crochet Trim ribbon for the handle.
  • Sponge your cone with Soft Suede ink if you like a distressed look.
  • Create the flower using punches. Crumble them for a distressed and full look. Sponge them if you'd like them to look distress. Add a brad to hold the layers and glitter them randomly.  I added a pearl to the center of the brad to add to the vintage theme.
  • The banner was created for a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock measuring 1/2" x 4".
