Sweet cones

I purchased the cellophane cones and personalised stickers only. I went to a sweet warehouse to buy a variety of pink and white sweets.

I made up the sweet cones and sealed the top with some thread

The basket is from Dunelm. I attached the die cuts on the outside edge of the lining around the basket with a hot glue gun. I die cut them with a Sue Wilson. I then attached the satin ribbon and the pearl embellishments with hot glue. I scanned one of the stickers and enlarged it so I could print it to attach to the front of the basket. I die cut it with a Xcut scalloped circle die from a nesting set and then die cut a pink scalloped circle with the next size in the nesting set. I attached  these to the basket. I then added  the sweet cones to the basket.
