Petal Cone Candy Dish

My shipment of new goodies arrived yesterday!  I had been thinking about this project from the time I saw the new petal cone die in the Occasions Mini. Today I got a chance to make it.
I cut eight pieces with the petal cone die and cut them down.  After assembling the boxes I mounted them on a square of cardboard cut from the backing of the Designer Series Paper pack.  
Here is a brief tutorial of how I cut the pieces.  This is what the petal cone piece looks like.
 I located the score lines as marked above and measured up 1-1/4".   Then made the indicated cuts.
    Each box requires two pieces, so I cut eight pieces (four from each of two different patterns of paper.)
I mounted each box on a 2-1/4" X 2-14" square of cardstock to stabilize it before securing the four boxes to a 5 x 5 square of cardboard.

Not wanting to waste the portions that I cut away, I made the leftover pieces into four table favors.

For all of these projects it is best to use sticky strip to make a strong bond.
These are a perfect size for small candies such as Rolos or Hershey's Kisses.  The Candy Cane Kisses are just so cute (and yummy too!)


  1. You are so creative! Love the candy dish!

  2. WOW, tfs this is a great way to make a box and use the cone. I just added this die to my order!
