Treat Cone using Viva Las Vegastamps!

I am really excited to be a member of the amazing Viva Las Vegastamps design team. On my debut post, October 5th, I shared two projects, the first, is a Halloween Treat Cone using  the Viva Las Vegastamps Cat & Bat Jack o’ Lantern stamp!
Cut cone from Robins Nest - Halloween Glitter Stripe paper, (I used a pattern borrowed from Gingersnap Creations.) Score on fold lines, fold cone, don’t adhere seam at this time.  Punch holes with Crop-o-dile on sides and attach eyelets for ribbon.  Cut black crepe paper four times the length of the top of the cone.  Using needle and thread gently do a loose stitch, then gather.  With Viva Las Vegastamps Miracle Tape along the top inside edge of the cone  attach crepe paper.  Around the top outside edge of cone embellish with black Stickles.  Set aside to dry. 

Stamp Viva Las Vegastamps Cat & Bat Jack o’ Lantern on white cardstock, color pumpkin with COPICS, add black Stikles to the cats and bat on the face of the pumpkin and set aside to dry.  Punch scallop circle from black cardstock and edge with black Stikles, set aside.  When dry, using Viva Las Vegastamps Miracle Tapeadhere Robin’s Nest Orange Dew Drops to the pumpkin cat  eyes.  Attach the pumpkin to black scallop with foam tape and attach scallop to the cone using foam tape.  With Viva Las Vegastamps Miracle Tape on cone seam adhere the two sides.  Add ribbons for handle.  Your cone is now ready to fill with Halloween treats!!!
