How can it be December already?????

I guess it's a sign of how busy life is when the months seem to fly by. So I've been working on Christmas projects, like this Paper Cone Christmas Wreath. It's very easy to do, if a little time consuming. But I love the finished product!





All the paper used is from the Be of Good Cheer DSP from the main Stampin Up catalogue. The little pine cone embellishments are items I saved from Thanksgiving party crackers we had a few years ago at a family dinner. I made everyone give me all the little goodies that decorated the outsides of the crackers. Glad I finally found a project to use them on!

In the middle is a rosette finished off with a Vintage Faceted Button for a little sparkle, and a pearl - all surrounded by Cherry Cobbler scalloped tulle. Here's a bit of a closeup of the middle part.


This was a lot of fun to put together and they can be made for any season or time of year just by changing the paper. I can see some more of these in my future!
