The New Petal Cone Die

Just a few more days and the brand new Occasions Mini for 2011 goes live- whoo hoo! Lots of cute stuff in it! (Drum roll please...) Introducing one of the new dies in the Occasions Mini- the brand new Petal Cone die- taaa daaa! Isn't it sweet? Can you imagine the possibilities with this?!!

I used Pirouette Pink to die cut my cone. The scalloped edge and the little banner in Very Vanilla that you see are part of the die- cool, huh? You can fold in the top flaps of the cone the same way you would fold in the flaps on the retired Petal Card die and the new Petal Card punch. If you add the scalloped edge though, you won't be able to fold the flaps inside the cone, but doesn't it look pretty on the outside :-) ? 

This was the project that I started a couple of days ago and I just finished it. Instead of moving on to my next project, I grabbed my camera so I could post it for you :D.

I hope you are all rested up after the holiday season! I've been having a shoulder issue for the last two days, but I think I am rested up now :-). Wishing you all a wonderful day today!

Barb, what cs dimensions and finished cone length and width could be expected from this day brightener?
With all the snowfall sites around this grand land a bright project will be enticing. Thanks for sharing.
Keep Looking UP!

Barb- what a sweet project. You did a fantastic job decorating this cone. I was waffling on whether to get this or not but seeing yours probably pushed me over the edge. TFS.

I love it! How fun to see some of the new goodies. :-) I like how you added the banner for the sentiment.
