Well I finally got around to making the cornacopia that I dreamed about a couple weeks ago. What I dreamed was not this exactly. Believe it or not my husband came up with this idea for the holder part of this. It was like duh, why didn't I think of that. So I have to give my husband Francis credit partly for this creation. Which is kind of scary in a way LOL.
I used the petal cone and emboss it with the houndstooth embossing folder to make the cornacopia and made different combinations of flowers to create this. I didn't fold the score lines and when I embossed it the score lines just dissappeared so I was able to make a cone shape out of it. I punched holes all around the top in the petals to thead my ribbon through and tied a bow. It is all held together with wooden skewers as stems and I have a round piece of floral foam in the cone. Also to attach the skewers as stems I used the same technique I did in the flowers in basket video. I won't be doing a tutorial on this so I thought I would give you some instructions on this.

I had a blast making these characters, after being inspired by Laura Haffke's cute characters that she posted on Stampin Up Demo Website. She did a Big Bird, Raggedy Ann and a Penguin with the candy legs. I had to make a Witch and Santa LOL. I am seeing how many I can come up with! This time I threw in Mrs Claus! I hope you like them.
Wow I am amazed how many comments and emails I have gotten over my Santa Card. I need to have those dreams more often! LOL!! Thank you for all your kind words and comments. It is my hope you all enjoy doing this project.
Ok I know this is going to sound a bit strange, but last night I dreamed about Santa. Not like that, I dreamed about this card! I am not sure but I am thinking I am a bit odd, because I dream of projects or tutorials EVERY NIGHT! Most ideas don't pan out, (referring to the cornucopia I dreamed about night before last) but the Santa card was in my dreams last night and I just had to do it. I am thinking of doing a tutorial on this card, let me know if you are interested.
