Thank you to the Martha Stewart craft empire for the instructions. I thought I knew how to make a cone, but there's a little trick to the proportions and gluing...
|The cone is made of scrapbook paper, cream with a black outlined pattern that helps it stand out against the white dress. The dress, by the way, is not the flower-girl dress. Naomi was playing dress up.|
|I incorporated antique lace from the groom's mother (my wonderful mother-in-law). The handle ribbon and bow are in the wedding colors.|
|I was thinking of making the second flower-girl cone with the purple ribbon under the lace for the handle and a green bow; the paper would be the same.|
|Flower-girl-in-training Naomi was very gentle with the paper cone.|
|I can't tell if she's posing or just bored with the photo shoot!|
|Here's a closer shot of the pattern on the paper. It seems to fit with the Renaissance theme of the wedding.|
