Retro Vintage Christmas Cone Ornament

Hello Friends!!
Happy Sunday!!
Today is my second time posting at
Really Reasonable Ribbon.
 I have another fabulous Christmas ornament to help inspire you to create some holiday ornaments of your own!
I have created a "Retro Vintage Christmas Cone Ornament."
I used some great ribbons and trims from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  The vintage cone image is one that my friend Sandi asked me to fix (digitally).  You can pop on over to her blog and get it for free!!  
You can also find it on my "stuff" page.

 Here is a look at the image before I fixed it up.
Here it is fixed up :0)  I just love GIMP.  Feel free to see my tutorial on how to use GIMP here.
Here are some more photos of my Christmas Cone below.
Here you can see the red snowflake ribbonpeppermint baker's twinered pom pom trim and red box pleated trim that I used to make the top look all fancy.  I also used some of the same trims to dress up the bottom of the cone.
I used some Mica flakes and Glitter to add some sparkle through out the cone.  I also used Utee to make the stars pop.
Here are some additional photos of the rest of the cone.

I hope that this inspires you to create something fun and festive!!

Better yet, pop on over to Sandi's blog, get the free sheet I created with her vintage image, get some ribbons and trims, dress it up and link up to our RRR challenge going on now!!

Anything but a card and ribbon!!

I will be sharing with
