Victorian Gift Cones

I just love this tin cone filled with flowers. It hangs on one of the knobs to my studio closet. I found this somewhere in Virginia at an antique store while traveling with my two sisters. It's not an antique but I love it just the same.

I plan on making more gift cones just like it out of paper- they were traditionally filled with flowers, candy or nuts and were given as small tokens in the Victorian era. What a nice idea that is!

Some traditions are meant to stay around!
