... this one doesn't flop :)


This flower cone doesn't flop (see previous post). The difference is to have the ribbon on either side of it rather than in the back. This only took and hour to make .... not bad .... and I've discovered that crepe paper is a really great embellishment for that Victorian kind of look.

So this project used: a music sheet, crepe paper, ric-rac ribbon, a gold pipe cleaner, glitter, ribbon, gold stars, a snowflake ornament and a vintage Christmas St. Nick sticker.



I'm planning to surprise a friend by leaving it on her front door doorknob - like you would do with a May basket on May 1st.

OH so lovely Kimmie and no flop tip is very useful. I've had a flopping cone last year and gave up on it!

The crepe paper and tiny stars have a sweet European feel to me!

Ho Ho Ho from almost 20 inches of snow here in Virginia!
