Here are a couple more favors I made, this time with a baby shower in mind (little sis is expecting a boy!) I made these with the 11 1/2″ mini scallop circle die out of double-mates cardstock, I love this stuff because you get two colors for the price of one…well it may be a couple  of cents more LOL! The bigger cones were made with half of a scalloped sheet and the standard cones were made with a 1/4 sheet. Don’t be afraid to try making these, even for a big shower because they only take minutes to make. Be sure to try Killer Red Tacky Tape when you assemble these, I even used them to hold on my lace and ribbon! No more burned fingers from the hot glue gun, YAY!

Speaking of burnt fingers I think my new bead kiln is ready for another firing! Till next time happy crafting!

X-Mas tussie treat cone & a Cricut DS and SCAL/SVG Freebie!

Hi Folks! I was thinking about what to give the kids teachers this year for Christmas and I came up with this:

xmastussie

It is a treat cone or “tussie” and it is super quick and easy to make! I made a scallop cone cut file to use with Cricut Design Studio and the George cart here, and an SVG version to use with your Cricut and Sure Cuts a lot software. The SVG version has other goodies with it too including a scallop trim and ribbon sliders!

* On the Cricut DS version you will need to make a cut on each end of the cone to release it from the mat. I usually put a 6″x12″ paper on the mat and cut it then send the mat back through other end first and cut it again so I get two cones from one sheet.

If you want to make the tussie “old school” its easy (and it is how i did the inner cine liner) just take a compass and set it at 6″ and put the metal point on the corner of a 12″ sheet of pattern paper and draw an arc. You can do this at each corner to make 4 cones and have paper left over in the middle to punch tags or whatever. Cut along the line with strait or deco scissors. Then roll up the cone and glue! I punched and glittered the edge but that is up to you, make them simple or elaborate just jon’t forget to fill them with goodies before you give them away! until next time happy Crafting!
