Paper Pine Cone

Hi all
I thought I would have a go at something a bit different and so I made this paper pine cone.I used a polystyrene egg and covered it with folded papers that are from the Nitwit country gent paper pad.The pleated top is made using a TH rosette die and the ribbon is from meiflower crafts. I enjoyed making this project and it kept me busy on my long train journey after visiting family at the weekend...It is the first one I have made and I am quite pleased with it...
