Gorgeous Jumbo Paper Pinecones {Tutorial}

Just in time for your holiday decorating!  Detailed Step-by-Step Tutorial Available for Purchase.

These big, gorgeous, life-like, jumbo pinecones are made completely out of cardstock and Stampin' Up! punches and dies.

These jumbo pinecones are almost as big as my hand!  I've gone pinecone crazy!  I've decorated my holiday mantel with them.  I've used them to make a beautiful wreath.  Plus, I've used them in some stunning paper flower arrangements that I will be giving away as gifts.   I've found tons of holiday decorating to do with them, and I know you will too!

I have put together a detailed tutorial on how make each of these beautiful, detailed and life-like pinecones.  Note:  these pinecones are very different from the mini pinecones featured in my Candy Cane Bouquet Tutorial .   The tutorial gives clear step-by-step instructions with tons of gorgeous photos on how to make the pinecones, plus lots of instruction on how to create the subtle effects that really make them look real and come to life (click on the picture to see the close up details).   The complete tutorial is 7 pages in length and has 21 photos.  The pinecones are not difficult to make, but a lot of photos are required to give complete step-by-step instruction.  

The complete tutorial on how to make these big, life-like pinecones is available for purchase for only  $2.50
