Petaloo: Christmas decorations

Hi there, today I am sharing a couple of Christmas projects created with Graphic 45's The Twelve Days of Christmas Collection and Petaloo's Botanica Collection flowers.  They are perfect together!  Here is what I created.  A Christmas tag to decorate a bottle of wine as a gift for someone and a Christmas Vintage Cone as a tree decoration.




As you can see on my tag I used one of the pretty labels, which I die cut and layered on top of gold glittery label, which I die cut with Spellbinders die.  I also added a pretty lacey die cut from Cheery Lynn in cream color.  




Once I put my tag together with all the pretty papers I added all my pretty Botanica flowers and finally I tied my tag on to the bottle with a red seam binding ribbon.




My next project is a Christmas Vintage cone. I found a paper mache cone at Michael's so my cone is very sturdy and all I had to do is add the pretty papers.  I used the same idea in my cone as my focal point just like on the tag.  I love the labels and once again I layered it onto a gold glittery label, which I tucked into my cone.  I poked two holes in the sides to attach my ribbon and started adding the flowers and twigs, they were just perfectly fitting my cone.




As a final touch I added a christmas ball ornament in my cone, I just tought it made a great addition.  It sure looks pretty on my tree, which is not decorated yet, so it was perfect to highlight this decoration.



Well, hope you like these Christmas inspirations.
