Holiday Treats with Epiphany Crafts and Heidi Swapp Believe

Hello and welcome back from the Holiday weekend.  Did you eat too much stuffing?  Turkey?  I know we certainly did! 

This week over at Epiphany Crafts our design team challenge was to create Holiday Treats.  This is the quick little project I came up with.    Super simple, super fast and kinda cute... don't ya think?

Don't forget about those Epiphany Crafts charms!  They add so much "wow" to any project.   I simply rolled the paper into the cone shape and inserted an eyelet in the bottom point of the cone.  Then I used two jump rings to attach the charm.  The eyelet just gives it a little added protection from tearing and adds a little support for the charm to hang from.  If you don't have an eyelet, you could also reinforce the bottom with extra paper, washi tape or whatever you have on hand.

This cone was a little more simple.  I added some Heidi Swapp Color Magic letters sprayed with Chartreuse Color Shine and kept the rest pretty simple.  I thought it looked a bit more "boyish".

You could really dress the cones up with layers and layers of embellishments.  I ran out of time, but I plan to make a few more and add lots of vintage goodness to them.
