Cut it Up Challenge # 21 - Red, White and Blue and Trendy Twine

Welcome my bloggie friends, I have another project to share for the  Cut it up Blog Challenge.

Cut it up Challenge #21 - Create a project using the colors red, white, and blue and trendy twine from Annie's Paper Boutique.

This was a fun challenge since we got to play with this yummy twine. I decided for this challenge that I wanted to make something that I have not made yet so I choose this home décor project.

I started out with my Artiste cart and cut the cone on page 42 at 5" from The Paper Studio 8.5x11 crackled star CS. I used my Sookwang two sided sticky tape to hold this together.

To decorate I used Trendy Twine in Berries Jubilee for the handle. I added a flower and button from my stash and added some more Trendy Twine In the Navy for the center of the button. Just so I could try out every color from this collection I used more Trendy Twine in Cranberry for the fringe at the bottom of my cone.

 
 
 
To finish off the cone I added some flowers and a few patriotic finds to the inside of the cone.



 
My daughter has already claimed this one so I'll have to make one for myself now. :)
