Stampin’ Up! Petal Cone & Kisses

These super cute fabric petal cones are full of fun decorated kisses!  I created these for a treat wrapper swap at the Stampin’ Up! Leadership conference.

The little kisses are so much fun to decorate and really quick and easy!

  1. stamp images from the Itty Bitties stamp set (Spring Catalog)
  2. punch out with the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack (I used the circle)
  3. punch out 3/4″ circles from coordinating designer paper
  4. add to the bottom of the chocolate kiss with a mini glue dot!
  5. cuteness!

I choose the Itty Bitties images to color coordinate with the fabric that I used for each Petal Cone holder.  I made them in various colors using the fabric from the Essentials Designer Fabric pack – Cherry Cobbler, Early Espresso, Old Olive, Daffodil Delight, and Marina Mist.

Here are a few tips on how I made the fabric petal cones –

  • I cut pieces of each of the fabrics to fit the petal cone die – I think they were about 6″x6″ or maybe 5-1/2″
  • I cut pieces of felt to be the same size
  • I cut pieces of the Fabric Adhesive roll to be just a bit smaller
  • Using an iron follow the directions for the Fabric Adhesive and create a “sandwich” – one layer of fabric, the fabric adhesive, a piece of felt, another fabric adhesive, the second layer of fabric – for each one I used the same color in the two different patterns.
  • Now take the fabric sandwich and cut the Petal Cone shape using the Big Shot machine – it should be the cutting plate, the die, the fabric sandwich, another cutting plate.
  • Cut away the little tab on the side
  • If you want to sew – and yes these are sewn – first sew around the two scallops.
  • Next fold down one of the scallops – that is going to be your front – and stitch it down so that it stays folded over
  • Now fold the two petals together to create the cone shape and stitch up the side to close it.
  • If you don’t want to sew then just use a strip of fabric adhesive to adhere the sides closed.

petal-cone-flowerTo decorate the front I cut a flower from the scraps that were left after cutting the petal cone.  I used the small flower from the Fun Flowers Die.  I stitched it onto the pouch using Whisper White Baker’s Twine and added a coordinating button to the center.

If you haven’t noticed these are the same little pouches that I made for the paper snips that I gave my downline for Christmas.  So  once the kisses have been eaten this can be used to store your paper snips.
Thanks to Cindy for coming over with her sewing machine so I could get these all together before I went to Leadership.  I know for sure I need a new sewing machine.  Now to figure out which one to buy – if anyone has any thoughts let me know.
