    Step 1

    Gather supplies. (Kits are available on my blog!).

    Step 2

    Cover cone with decorative paper.

    Step 3

    I used Graphic 45's "Come away with Me" collection.

    Step 4

    Adhere lace around top edge of covered cone.

    Step 5

    Attach wire handle.

    Step 6

    Nothing fancy, simply punch two holes across from one another, thread wire thru and twist. (Be sure to punch holes far enough down so they don't pull thru the top edge of cone).

    Step 7

    Accordion fold the pre-scored paper strips.

    Step 8

    Attach strips together.

    Step 9

    Then attach the ends together, forming a circle.

    Step 10

    Place adhesive on the punched circle.

    Step 11

    Flatten accordion piece and shape into a circle shape and adhere to punched circle.

    Step 12

    This is the back view. You can see the accordion adhered to punched circle (I was a little off center but it doesn't matter because it's the backside). :)

    Step 13

    Trim lace to your liking.

    Step 14

    Adhere trimmed lace, then heart to the sweet medallion we just crafted.

    Step 15

    Prepare title banner: score as shown.

    Step 16


    Step 17

    And fold.

    Step 18

    Step 19


    Step 20

    Ink the edges for added dimension if desired.

    Step 21

    Adhere banner to layered medallion piece.

    Step 22

    Adhere to cone.

    Step 23

    Step 24

    Tie lace or ribbon to wire. Add glitter and moss if you like.
