Little Christmas Ornaments- MDUC GDT #4

Hi Everyone!

Today I have a couple of Christmas ornaments to share with you.
I have made them for my last GDT project at MDUC.
The theme for this week's new challenge is
Christmas Ornament

These cone-shaped Christmas ornaments can be hung
on Christmas tree or anywhere you wish.
They can also be filled with small gifts and/or treats.

The cones are made of  DPs- a good way to use my DP collections.
I used a compass to draw a pie shape on the DP
with 5.5" radius and a 70 degree angle.
If you use a 12"x12" DP, you can draw a full circle 
and cut out 5 pie-shaped pieces. 

I cut out some paper doily strips and attached them to the top of the cones.
I have split the CS into 2 layers (before cutting) to make the paper more pliable.
I also added some laces to hide the seams and for decoration.

I colored Angel Tilda with Copic markers and added 
some glitters on the halos and wings.
I then framed the image with a sparkly scalloped oval die cut.

To complete the hanging, I added some cheese cloth,
a lace applique, a tassel, a star charm, 
and a handmade poinsettia.

I attached a couple of small organza ribbon roses on
each end of the hanging string to hide the knots.

I am going to make a bunch of these ornaments and 
stuff them with small gifts and treats.

Hope you enjoy this visit.
Don't forget to hop over to MDUC to check out the DT creations
and join in the Christmas Ornament challenge.

I've always loved the cone decoration. It is so elegant and really makes a statement. I love your colour schemes and your stamp choice Katie and I'm sure these will be a hit with whomever you give these too especially if they are filled with goodies.
