I decided to go with the theme and take it a little further with the focus being on graditude. Traditionally the cornucopia is a symbol of plenty or abundance. Greeks and Romans believed the cornucopia to have mythological powers. I think it is just a beautiful tangible reminder of just how blessed we really are. With that in mind I made this Cornucopia similar to the one found at flipflops and applesauce.
First I rolled a paper bag into the cone shape.
Then I wrapped and glued twine around the cone
Towards the end I wrapped the twine
and then folded it to go back the other direction.
Using the Art Philosophy Cartridge I made the flowers to decorate
the cornucopia, added some berries and a maple leaf.
A close up of the flowers - love this cartridge!!
Then I filled the cornucopia with "fruits" on popsicle sticks.
Some of them have flowers on the end that I cut on the cartridge and then
stamped with a flower from Hooray Bouquet stamp set.
On the sticks we wrote things we are thankful for. I have most of them blank
so that we can write things throughout the month and date them.
Some of the sticks with writing - I too am thankful for Jesus :)
