New Sizzix Die!!!

OK, Blogger is acting up tonight and this is the second time I posted this!! This is the new SU Sizzix Die called Petal Cone Die. It makes a nifty little cone shaped box and you can make it look so different by just changing how you treat the top part. My pictures are not very good tonight so be sure to click and see them up close. And these little things are rather difficult to photograph. The first one shows the petal top UP and decorated on one side. In the next photo the top is closed and a rose is on the top. In the third photo, the petal sides are folded down and a small half scallop is added underneath. This piece as well as the little banner piece is part of the die. The fourth photo shows the top folded down and the scalloped contrast piece on the top. And finally, just the plain sides folded down with no paper trim. I didn't decorate all the cones, just a few so you could get an idea. These are a fairly good size and would hold candy, nuts, small hobby items, a piece of jewelry and I'm sure you can think of more. And just for fun, Google Petal Cone Die and you will see all the things folks are doing with it. Ice cream cones, carrots for Easter, candy dishes, boxes, flat cones, cards, etc. It's a very versatile die with loads of possibilities. I think you'll like it!

They are sooo sweet Mary.
I'm doing well, how about you?
I must laugh over your comment on SCS. But you are right, I have my own "look" of cards ;-)

hugs, Elly
