I admit I did not have a plan other than I had purchased these little paper-mâché boxes and cones thinking I would find a recent photo for the cones and decorate the boxes. I had thought I would find some antique paper to cover the boxes with but then remembered I had some pink and black sticky back vinyl and took off from there.
Using a couple of simple white pom-pom's I colored them with Pebbles chalk, took just a few minutes and I had white no more! I love these chalks for all kinds of things, I find them useful.
One of the great things about this vinyl is the grid on the back as it makes it very easy to measure and cut out your pieces.
The box is covered, now for the cone.
Covered the cone and using Scotch Quick Dry Adhesive added a recent photo which I cut around to fit on the cone.
To finish off the box I went to my scrapbook embellishments and found these pears and some ric-rac, glued the ric-rac and randomly attached the pearls. Ready for some white sizzle, a wrapped sugar cookie and the invitation.
After the first one, the second one was very easy. Covered the box with vinyl, then added checkered duct tape (I cut for the correct width) and some cute 7Gypsies tape around the bottom.
To finish off the box I cut and folded some black ribbon that had pom-pom edges and glued around the raw edges of the cone.
Now to fill and they will be ready for delivery.
One of Grammie's sugar cookies dipped in glaze and lots of sparkly edible glitter (to be wrapped in Saran wrap).
Ready to go - hope these two like their invitations.
