We’re cooking with Christmas on the front burner now!! Welcome to Day 4 of A Waltzingmouse Christmas. Today we’re sharing Christmas Decorations!! As I have mentioned, I’m starting from scratch on my Christmas tree this year and I’m simply not finding the types of things I want locally so I’ve been playing around with a limited set of decorations and ornaments I can make myself. One of the decorations I’ve had on my mind are the vintage cones that hang from the tree. This one is large enough to hold a small gift and I have candy in this one. For my skinny pencil tree I’d have to go much smaller, but I’m pretty much there! For my square cone I’m using a regal looking stamp from Waltzingmouse Stamps called Compliments of the Season Two Claire provides the digital cutting files for this set free ——> HERE.
I simply cut the digital file in burgundy and embossed in gold then cut a matting layer from gold. The luscious trim on the top is from A Gilded Life and a small piece of velvet ribbon threaded through jumbo eyelets gives me a way to hang it up.
