Heart with the Petal Cone

Yesterday I showed you the Petal Cone and I am showing it to you again today. Although today you might not recognize it because it looks like a heart. How awesome is that. Perfect for Valentine's treats! Now I must admit that I am not a genius because when I looked at the die in the catalog a heart did not stand out to me but when I received my Stampin' Success magazine there was a project in their that used the die as a heart pouch. It was just another reason I thought, I really need to get this die. I was so excited when Letty said I could borrow it from her so I could play with it before I ordered mine. I wanted to wait for Sale-A-Bration so that I could get some free stuff.

To make the petal cone you have to cut out the shape twice and then you would fold on all the crease lines and assemble but for this project you leave the petal cone flat. The only thing you do is glue the pieces together. I then decorated the heart with an image from the Wedding Sweet stamp set, then I stamped a heart from the I Heart Hearts Stamp set and punched it out and layered it on some Early Espresso. After I layered the heart image I ruffled some very vanilla ribbon around the circle. The little banner piece is another part of the die, I stamped the love you and glued it on the heart. Once again I used ribbon to make a handle for the pouch and I used the packaging paper as a filler.

Happy Sunday everyone!
