I recall being on vacation in South Carolina around 2001 and seeing some very LARGE pine cones. I had never seen such large cones before. I bagged up a bunch and took them home (Northern Virginia) to decorate for Christmas.
This Stampin’ Up! Pine Cone Christmas Ornament reminds me of those large pine cones. The Pine Cone Christmas Ornament is my significant Stampin’ Up! 3-D item for Christmas 2011. It is 7″ in length and 4-1/2″ in width. I am so pleased with the way it turned out.
Once again, I used the Holly Berry Bouquet Specialty Designer Series Paper (DSP), my favorite Stampin’ Up! DSP for the holidays. It took hours for me to make the pine cone, and it required MANY 1″ x 2″ pieces of the DSP and MANY straight pens. But it is so worth it!
I used the Stampin’ Up! Red Glimmer Paper for three rows around the cone, and for the poinsettia that rests on top of the cone.

I hope you have enjoyed my Pine Cone Chistmas Ornament!
