Countdown to Christmas & GIVEAWAY- Day 1| Recycled Festive Cones

by Pattie B. | December 15, 2012

Hi everyone!  Pattie here starting off Ruby Rock-It Bella! Fundamentals Countdown to Christmas!  Can you believe that in 10 days, Christmas will be upon us?  Oh my gosh, I need to get a bustling!


I was able to get this cute little project done for one of my family's traditions.  Dec. 6th is Saint Nicolas day and my kids have always loved getting little treats.  A traditional St. Nicolas gift is mandarin oranges, nuts and chocolates and I couldn't think of a better way to present it than in a paper cone.

I created these cones with the beautiful Eklectique range.  The colors are rich and warm, perfect for all of those holiday projects that you need to create. 

This is the cone that I created for my daughter.

This is the little tag that I made for the cone.  I fell in love with the packaging of our beautiful bling!  The chipboard is thick and sturdy and has a beautiful text on it.  I knew that I needed to use it- how could I throw away such pretty packaging.  So I made this tag.

The other element of the Ecklectique paper range I adore is the variety of vintage images on the paper.  I love vintage images and knew that I had to use one!

This is the cone that I made for my son.  I love that within the Eklectique range, I was able to create both feminine and masculine projects.  Talk about versatile!!

I made this embellishment with a Cardstock sticker and the Decoupage pack. I love the Decoupage packs!  What a beautiful element that looks like I spent hours fussy cutting and layering when in actuality, all of the work was done for me!
