Sooo… I was like “what is a Tussie Mussie”? Well, it’s a cone for treats, little gifties and more you make out of paper, toilet paper rolls, etc… So here is my hand at it. I got my inspiration from LiveLoveScrap on YouTube – Bona is her name. I follow her work and try to keep up with the videos for this VERY reason.
Now I am officially Tussie Mussie-fied, LOL
BTW, you can find tutorials all over YouTube on these, so go search!
I started with a 12×12 piece of double sided pattered paper (thick is good), shaped it, used my tiny attacher by Tim Holtz to secure the very bottom of the cone, then I used my Scotch Quick dry to secure the paper seam and voila, it was ready to embellish. I embellished with Glitz stamps, a Spellbinders die cut, i am roses flower, Recollections flower, Melissa Francis trim, Tim Holtz Distress Markers (I colored in the little postage stamp with those). I also wrapped a large square doily around the outside and adhered with my Scotch dot roller.
Go crazy out there! Oh, I also put eyelets with my Crop-a-Dial to make the ribbon handle so it can hang on a door. :0) Have fun you guys! *Tip: if you click one photo, you can scroll all with the arrow.
Well, what a thing to happen… Made these fun tags with the new collection by MME, All is Bright and in the hustle & bustle of wrapping, they got set aside and I just found them! Oh well, next year’s gifts will have some great tags.
Hee, hee… I used white acrylic paint on the edges of the tags (thanks Kim for the tip from Paper Loves Glue), layered the paper, adhered brads, chipboard and washi tape to the tags and also used stamps from the collection for added pop. The little jungle bells are from Michaels and the tinsel yarn is Martha Stewart, Michales also.
