{paper cone}

I have another simple, easy to make Mother's Day giftie to show you. 

I cut a 12" doily into a wedge shape, ran some double stick tape down one side and rolled it until I was happy with how it looked.  I gently held it in place and pulled the cover off the tape and burnished it from the inside with my bone folder to make sure it held tight.

I inked the edge of a mini doily with  both alcohol ink and an ink pad till I got the right color. 

 I added a circle of pattern paper to the center of the doily and placed  the "mother" sentiment sticker on it.  I added a scrap piece of a border sticker under the word.  To finish it off and pretty it up I added a sprig of paper roses, a MME butterfly and some pretty ribbon.  Fill it with your Mom's favorite treats or some pretty flowers and leave it hanging on her door for Mother's Day!

There are some new challenges up at My Sketch World.  Making a paper cone is my challenge this month!  If you happen to join in please let me know!  :)

Tomorrow is National Scrapbooking Day and SRM will be having a BIG giveaway on the blog, be sure to check it out!  How will you be celebrating?
Happy Friday, friends.  I hope happy surprises you in ways both big and small today!
