The New Petal Cone Die! March Stamp Camp Project #1

I'm so excited about the new Petal Cone Die!  At first look, you would think it's just a simple shaped box die, but I've discovered it can be so many more things.  Not just different boxes, but it can be used to create baskets, pouches and even cards!  How cool it that!  For my first March stamp camp project, I've going to show you how to make it into a party hat box and a very cool embedded matching card.

Isn't this fantastic!  Just think about how much fun it would be to give this card and box to someone special on their birthday!  I created the party hat box by simply texturizing the die cut pieces with polka dots, decorating the sides, turning the box over and adding a tassel to the point.   
The card was created using a easy technique called Embedding.  The "paper" is created by gluing layering punched circles in a random pattern to a piece of cardstock, then running the card stock through the Big Shot using the Square Lattice textured impressions folder.  This technique is really neat looking in person and it creates unique looking piece of paper that could be made with almost any punch.  I used the free sale-a-bration set "So Happy for You" for the perfect festive greeting.
