Ribbon Ice Cream?!

Hi, Laura here today.

A few years back Ali (Crafty Ribbons owner) made some adorable ribbon cupcakes.  They planted a seed in my mind... what about a ribbon ice cream cone?  A few years have past, but the idea hung on and has now come to fruition...

The cone is made by pinning Swiss dot ribbon in 'tan and white' to a polystyrene cone.

It always takes me a long time to decide what flavour to pick when I buy a cone, and true to form it took a long while to decide which ribbons to use!  I settled on Raspberry ripple and used a collection of pink ribbon in both grosgrain and organza Swiss dots.

These were also pinned to polystyrene - I cut a ball in half to give me a scoop type shape.  As I pinned I twisted to give the look of ice cream from a Mr Whippy machine.

I hope you like this creation...  I'm quite hungry now... off for an ice cream I think!
