Paper Sweeties June Release

Paper Sweeties June Release Sneak Peaks continue!  We've got a wedding theme for June, but as you may have seen yesterday with my Color Your Own Paper Dolls notecards , they can be very versatile.

I printed this cone onto textured cardstock and then scalloped the top.  Added a silver banner (the With Love sentiment is from the new Best Wishes set) to the side and a tag (using the small frame and postmark cancellation images from the new Love set) to the top.  This could certainly be a wedding favor, but it could also hold a little birthday or gift for a friend. Or your mom or sister...

This reminds me of the tiny schueltutes I used to make for every first day of school for my students. I would talk about (and show pictures) of the German custom.

Parents fill a huge schueltute and leave it in the cloak closet for their child on the first day of school.  I made little ones - usually started with a party hat and added tissue to the top.  I filled it with pencils, erasers, little trinkets and treats.  It would be on their desk when they arrived at school.  They were a big hit!
