Design Team Project 2 by Astrid featuring MME

Here are a couple of further little project showing some ideas of how the wonderful My Mind's Eye Kraft Funday Collection and coordinating embellishments can be used.

This Kraft Card is so strong that it spells craft projects to me. As my DT colleagues have shown so many cards already and with Christmas now just around the corner, here are a couple of little gift ideas: A cone (I will provide a template below), and a little candle holder.

Here is the cone which you can fill with little sweet treats.

I cut the template out of one of the papers, glued and folded it together and glued a doily on the inside. I then embellished using some die cuts, little roses and some of the brads from the "Everyday Fun Decorative Brads" (KFD117)

Here is a template for the cone. You can size it to whatever size you want of course.

The second project is a little candle holder

I made a box out of a 6 x 6 piece of one of the papers, cut a hole in the center with a Spellbinders Nestability circle die and glued it onto a doily die cut (also Spellbinders)I inked the edges with Vintage Photo distress ink and used some more of the brads, a ribbon and some punched out leaves to decorate.

Well, that's it from me for this month.

Wishing you all a wonderful Christmas!!
