 I hope you are enjoying this ride of crafty goodness.
Welcome to my blog and the My Vintage Valentine Blog hop. If you came from Alina blog, you are in the right place. If you were just stopping by my blog and want to play along in the hop start the beginning at KinderStampO
I hope to inspire you with this theme of 
My Vintage Valentine
I made the Vintage Corsage for a swap over at
I thought I would share it with you all.

This was fun to make. I cut a heart out of Chipboard and painted it with Tim Holtz's Distress Crackle Paint in Worn Lipstick, I glued a heart doily and I found a valentines pick at Michael's. I made a ribbon and tulle bow. The book text rosette I cut from a Tim Holtz die and I put Stickles ( Platinum-My favorite color with doing vintage stuff) on the edge. I found the vintage valentines tag in my stash. I really don't know how old this is...LOL
My Vintage Valentine project is this little cone
I favor crepe paper trim. I love is stuff and I find it hard to find or to expensive so I make it myself. I found a vintage roll at a thrift/antique shop in the bay area.
I also use regular party streamers.
To make the Fringe, I layer about 4 or 6 sheets of the streamer and sew down the center. I crease it down the middle to help me sew it straight. 
If I want it to be a smaller fringe, I sew about 1/2 " away from both edges
after sew one edge I flip it and do the other. Then I cut it down the center and I'm left with two strips. Now that I've sewed it it time to cut! This is time consuming
I fold the streamer in half where the seam is and cut 1/4" just into the center
This is the small fringe. I did the same but cut maybe just under ever 1/4"
Now that you have cut it it's time to fluff

it's easier to put it on your project and then fluff

To make the cone I used a 6"x6" square

Then cut from one end to another to create a half circle
Create your cone and hot glue it together.
hot glue the fringe to the top edge
glue the doily and I glued German Glass Glitter onto Maya Road chipboard pieces
I used seam binding for the handle
I hope you enjoyed my take of the
