|The glitter really picks up the light ...|
you might even say it casts an eery glow...okay, maybe not.
My son's too old to trick or treat, so I made these Batty Door Cones to hang on doors around the house -- strategically placed around my craft room -- and be filled with candy! I would've taken pictures with the candy inside the cones...but somebody ate all the candy so far. Not to worry -- I went out and bought some more today. =)
I'm entering in the Cricut Circle's Monthly Challenge for October, where I needed to make a Home Decor project using two or more Cricut image cuts. Splitcoast Stampers has a tutorial for the cone treats, and there are a variety of others on the web. But for my cones, I used my Cricut for all the cuts! I used Plantin Schoolbook cart to cut a circle using the Fit-to-Page feature (one circle makes two cones). Then I cut the circle in half. For each half circle, I marked the center of the straight edge -- then starting at the center mark I cut a 1/4 of the half circle away. I used score-tape to secure the cone shape, then secured two large eyelets to the sides to hold the ribbon hangers.

cartridges. There are some FAB images to cut on those!
But I'd love to have a Cricut Cake machine -- just the same! =)
For the images I used the Holiday Cakes cartridge for the open winged Bat (including the layers), and the Boo w/the attached bat, and also for the Moon & Bat silhouette which I placed on the inside back of each cone. A little white inking on the "Boo", and glitter on the bats almost completes the cones. All they need now is a good helping of candy!
Here's hoping you get to satisfy your sweet tooth soon too! Lisa
