Patriotic Cone ~ TSOC

Good morning friends ~ I have something that's a little bit different for you today.  There's a new challenge starting over at The Sisterhood of Crafters and the theme is "Anything But A Card".  I enjoy these kinds of challenges because they get me thinking outside the box.
I actually made this patriotic cone back in June, specifically for this challenge, for a friend's birthday in July.  

She loves vintage like me, so I tried to incorporate a vintage feel to this patriotic cone by using a couple of vintage images from Crafty Secrets, some old lace and vintage book pages to create the flower embellishment.

I made these medallions using scrapbooking paper, adding some Antique Silver Silk Microfine Glitter to the edges.  I added a star shaped brad to the centers of the medallions.  This is a good way to use up some supplies that have been sitting around forever.  Who uses brads anymore?  The ticket is stamped and cut using PTI's Just the Ticket.  Another super old set, but still a favorite of mine for vintage crafting.  

The little flags are cupcake picks that I picked up a few years ago in the clearance baking section at Michael's.  

On a side note, my friend loved her gift when I gave it to her for her birthday.  I'm so glad!

Now it's YOUR turn to play along.  You can find all the details at The Sisterhood of Crafters or by clicking here.  We look forward to seeing what you create!

Thanks for stopping by!
