Stampin' Up! Petal Cone - Happy July 4th!

Do you have plans to celebrate today with family and friends?  How do you plan on decorating the table that will hold all of the yummy food?  I have an idea for you, but you'll need to get started creating it early in the day so you'll have your table decorated prior to food being served.  Making several of these would further enhance your table.

This table decoration features the Stampin' Up! Petal Cone Bigz L Die.  I love his die and use it often.

Paper: Real Red Cardstock (102482), Whisper White Cardstock (100730), Night of Navy Cardstock (100867), Silver Glimmer Paper (124005), and Red Glimmer Paper (121790) 
Accessories:  Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine (113439), Petal Cone Bigz L Die (121810), Retired Stars #2 Original Die, Full Heart Punch (119883), Strips Embossing Folder (123128), Vanilla Shimmer Smooch Spritz (118772), Adhesive of your choice, and Fourth of July decorations from a local craft store

To make this table decoration, follow these steps:
  • Cut 3 petal cones using the Petal Cone Die - 1 Whisper White, 1 Real Read, and 1 Night of Navy
  • Emboss each cone with the Strips Embossing Folder
  • Spritz each with the Vanilla Shimmer Smooch Spritz
  • Fold along each score line
  • Adhere the Real Red cone to the Whisper White cone, lining up the embossed strips
  • Adhere the Whisper White cone to the Night of Navy cone, lining up the embossed strips
  • Lay the adhered pieces face down (at this point you have not adhered the Night of Navy flap yet)
  • Adhere your craft store decorations about 1" down from the top portion of the Whisper White cone (you will need to cut a small half circle from the top of each cone so that when you close and adhere the final pieces together, the decorations fit nicely into the top)
  • Place adhesive on the flap of the Night of Navy cone and adhere it to the Real Red cone, folding under the flaps of each cone
  • Adhere the folded flaps to each other
  • Set the adhered cones down on Real Red Cardstock and trace around it
  • Cut out the traced piece of Real Red Cardstock and adhere it to the bottom of the cones (this provides a bottom cover to hide the flaps)
  • Using the Stars #2 Die (or a star punch), cut out stars from the Red Glimmer and Silver Glimmer paper and Night of Navy Cardstock
  • Adhere the stars onto the final adhered cone where desired.
  • Decide on your sentiment and place it onto Whisper White Cardstock
  • Using the Full Heart Punch, punch out the sentiment from the Whisper White Cardstock, as well as a heart from the Read Glimmer Paper and Night of Navy Cardstock
  • Layer the hearts as shown in the pictures and adhere them to the cone
  • Enjoy
