Petal Cone Hanger

3 Feb

I’m loving this Petal Cone die, so today I thought I would share another way to use it.  This could be done for any occasion.  I just added sweets tied up in one of our small cello bags.


Created by Kathy Alt


To create this hanger, you need to…

  1. Punch 2 of the petal cones out of designer paper or card stock and two of the scallops from the same die.
  2. Assemble the petal cone using sticky strip to assure it will be sturdy.
  3. Add your scallops under the front and back flaps.
  4. Punch a hole and add the jumbo eyelet .  Do this on the left and right side.

5.  Add your ribbon for the handle.
6.  Adhere the front flaps with adhesive.
7.  Fill as desired.

Petal Cone Valentine

2 Feb


Created by Kathy Alt



Stamp Set: Valentine Defined (inside) p. 9 Occasions Mini Catalog
Teeny Tiny Wishes
Big Shot Dies: Petal Cone, p. 15 Occasions Mini Catalog
Heart Embosslit
Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder
Colors: Pink Pirouette, Regal Rose, US White



1.     Cut 2 hearts from the petal cone die, but cut them one at a time to reduce the creasing.  DO use the regular cutting mats for this die.

2.     Cut one of the hearts in half on the center fold line.

3.     Emboss these two halves using the Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder, but be careful to decide which side should have the raised image.

4.     Fold the other heart in half and emboss.  You will have one raised side and one impressed side on the back, but no one will notice.

5.     Use the sticky strip to put the two half hearts on the front of the card.

6.     Use the hobby blade to cut a slit on each of the folds about half-way up for the ribbon.

7.     Cut the two scallops  and the saying flag using the petal cone die.

8.     Cut the heart using the heart embosslit.

9.     Use the pattern to cut out the inside heart, stamp this using the Valentine Defined set.

10.   Run your ribbon through the slits and across the inside of the card.

11.    Attach your stamped heart over the ribbon.

12.    Stamp your saying, fold the flag and attach over the embosslit heart.
