Posy Holder DIY Wedding

Good morning!  I hope your day is off to a great start.  Today I wanted to share with you this tutorial I made for Darice featuring gorgeous Core'dinations papers, Martha Stewart trims, and the most adorable little chalk boards.

Step 1: To form the cone, I used a large plate to trace a 1/2 circle out of the Whitewash Coredination's  paper (my plate was about 11 inches).  I love the soft, shabby look this paper has once sanded.  I cut a small piece out of the circle to make it less bulky when rolled.

Step 2:  After sanding, I placed a piece of double sided tape on the back side of the semi circle across one of the edges.  This will hold the cone together and create a clean seam.

Step 3:  Roll the cone tightly, being sure to keep a nice point at the bottom.  Once rolled you can do any additional sanding necessary, but it really is much easier to sand the flat surface..

Step 4:  Embellish the top of the cone with a bit of the lace duct tape and some flower ribbon.

Step 5:  For the bottom of the cone, I made a smaller cone using the same technique with a doily.  I poked a couple of holes into the bottom of the cone and then threaded a jump ring through it.  I used a headpin through the pearl bead to create a dangle.

Step 6:  For the finaly embellishment, I used Zip Dry to attach a small piece of the leaf ribbon, some pearls, and a large flower to the chalkboard tag and clipped to the cone.

To hang the cone, you can use either more of the small string pearls or the ribbons.  For this one, I chose the pearl string.  All that is left is to fill your posy decoration.
