Christmas Cone

I love cones, I like them  out of the  box, when I wear my sox, on a door, they never bore. I can fill them with treats and sweets, I can fill them with tricks and flower picks.  I love my cones, I do, I do.     OK I'm over my Suessitis, I hope.  But I really do like these simple yet elegant decorations.  I have them for several holidays and they are fun to hang on a friends door.

This one is covered with design paper.  I stamped the bottom with large flourish and heat embossed it before assembly.  There is a punched border around the top with rhinestones on the drop points and they are repeated around the bottom of the cone.  The rosette in the center is from a Tim Holtz die and a Spellbinders die.  The center of the rosette is a piece of design paper from Pink Paislee.  I chose it for my Johnny Luv who is true blue patriot.  What is more patriotic than Santa with an American Flag.
Here's a shot of the finished cone filled with flowers on a door in my kitchen.
This cone was entered in the anything goes challenge The Crazy Challenge
