I love the vintage and elegant look of this project. It would fit in so many different style decors. I also love to see you using dies that have been around awhile, such as the Damask to create the beautiful edging on the cone. Most people have limited budgets so I love to see projects that includes dies we May have had in our stash and would like to use more frequently. You have inspired me to look at my dies with new eyes. Thank you.

What a great tip about using the waxed paper for easy release of the die cuts. I will have to look for that die cut what a pretty design it creates.
