Quilled Cornucopia

Hi all! Well the drama never seems to end! I had a new medication prescribed and also the side effects that went with it and ended up in the ER Saturday morning. The side effects were intensified by another medication that I took to counteract them and though I vowed never to set foot in another hospital again, it was serious enough for me to go. After some pain medication, a different nausea medication, fluids and time I was sent home to let the offending medication get out of my system. I still have some lingering nausea and lack of appetite but that is all thankfully. So my projects that I was working on had to be put on hold and I hope to get back to feeling well enough to work on them tomorrow. But, for now I have posted another of the Custom Quilling DT projects for October that I had already done, a quilled cornucopia.
The beautiful designer paper for the cone and the side pieces as well as the quilling strips come in the October kit. I love to make little gifts for special occasions and the brown embossed paper made me think of a cornucopia. I used my Scalloped Paisley Nesties to make the cornucopia side pieces. The center is a cone that holds your treat or small gift. I added a paper twist handle to make it easier to pick up.
The quilled design is one of wheat, acorns and an apple with punched fall leaves, sheer ribbon and the cone is edged in a beautiful gold piece of trim. I wanted you to be able to see the DP inside of the cone so I didn't put my cookies in a bag. But, you could put your treats or gift in a cellophane bag and let the tied top spill out of the cornucopia for more interest.
Well, I am still a bit tired so I am off to bed. Do you have a fall project you would like to share? Post a link to it in the comments section, I'd love to see it!
Comments are always welcome, love to see your projects!
