Fountain, you say? Why yes, a fountain of love for Valentine's day! As soon as I saw the Petal Cone die, this little centerpiece came to mind. I know, not very practical, but kind of fun, don't you think? What? Oh, you need to see more of it before you can decide huh? Ok, here you go.
Here is the whole thing. I basically made the petal cone and trimmed the tip off. Then I cut a 5" circle and glued the petal cone to it. Then I cut ¼" strips of vellum cardstock to create the hearts erupting from the tip. The little hearts are all made with the Heart to Heart punch and the small Heart punch, jazzed up with sponging and white gel pen accents. After gluing the hearts to the vellum strips, I curled the vellum with a bone folder and adhered three strips per side inside the tip.
Here is a better look at some of the hearts. I know, I went a little overboard with the gel pen, but I think they are adorable! I took these pictures about a month after I made this, so as you can see, it has really kept its shape.
I also used the glitter on the base. And it just wouldn't be complete without more Signo white gel pen!
