Just Around The Corner

What's just around the corner? Halloween, of course. And it's about time I got some fun things going on around here. This Petal Cone Die is so versatile. There are dozens of ways to use this die. Well here it is as witch's hat filled with yummy treats. I made the hat in Basic Grey and sponged all edges with Basic Black. I cut one extra side, ran it through the Big Shot with the Spider Web Embossing Folder and did some more sponging. I added a strip of Rich Razzleberry dsp and some 1/8" Basic Black Taffeta Ribbon.
The rim of the hat is a 5 3/4" circle that I cut using my Circle Scissor Plus. I cut a smaller circle about 1 1/2" in the middle of the circle for getting your treats in and out later.
I placed the Petal Cone upside down in the middle of the circle and traced two of the sides of the cone. Next I removed the cone and cut the 2 lines using my craft knife. I slipped 2 of the flaps from the petal cone through the slits and adhered my sentiment from Sweet Centers, to one of the flaps.
