How cute are they?? I first got the idea for these when I was shopping in Target and a saw some little cone-shaped characters filled with lollies. My Stampin' Up! brain immediately thought "I could make those with the Petal-Cone Die". So I came home and made the Christmas Tree:
Look at the pretty star, made with the oh-so-sparkly Glimmer Paper (in the Summer Mini) and the Doily Triple Layer Punch:
I had so much fun making the tree that the whole time I was thinking 'what can I make next?'. How about Rudolph:
Isn't he adorable? (if I do say so myself!). I wanted him to be holding something, and what would Rudolph need for those foggy Christmas Eves...
At this point I wondered if anyone else had had the genius idea of making characters out of the petal cone die. Google turned up these clever ones on Tanya Bell's blog, so of course I had to make my own version of them too. Here's Santa:
And finally my elf:
All of their little bodies were also filled with goodies.
Judging by the tears in Michelle's eyes when she opened her present, I think she liked them :o)
