Congratulations Cynthia!    Head on over to the Pretty Little Studio Blog and let Melissa know you have won the prize on my blog...x

Just a little update too on how I created these little decorations.  A few people were asking how I put them together so here is a quick step by step...

1. Using a saucer or similar sized plate trace a circle around the outside edge, directly onto cardstock.  Cut in half.
2. Take one semi-circle and form a cone shape.  Adhere edges together.
3. Create a concertina flower as seen here but don't close it up.
4. Cut three more circles (3", 2.5" & 2").  Cut each circle in half and form cone shapes.
5. Snip the bottom of each patterned paper cone shapes to create the branches. Ink the edges. Cut a small section off the top of each cone until it slides to position required on the cardstock cone.
6. Slide over the cardstock cone and adhere.
7. Create a star using left over patterned paper and/or star punch.  Adhere to a toothpick.  Slide toothpick into the top of the cone.  Decorate with organza ribbon and a small shipping tag.

Thanks for visiting..x
