The ingredients are: vintage newspaper (spray glued down on card stock for stability), hand tinted crepe paper (start with white, soak the roll in water, puddle red water color paint over the top for an uneven tint to seep through the roll, gently squish out excess moisture, set to dry on a heat vent- the result looks like the gentle tint of pink rose petals); ribbon (I had brown laying around) and lots of grungy, old buttons (I steered away from the white ones- brown was more dramatic).
I assembled the cone with a stapler and hot glued the embellishments, because I was too impatient to wait for slow drying glue. The tag was done on my current favorite typewriter (I own three).
This morning I filled each cone with some Hershey's kisses bundled in white tissue paper and then tucked in a small posy of spriggy silk flowers. I can't wait until tomorrow to deliver them!
