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.

Howdy Ya’ll! I haven’t done a card challenge in a while, so I decided to try out the new Back In The Saddle stamp set from Waltzing Mouse. It makes me want to go jump on a horse and ride like the wind (but I can’t do that right now, I’m making a card). This will be my first challenge with WMS and I am so excited! I wish I had every single one of their products to play and play and play some more with… I love that WMS makes it user friendly too for those without a blog or any of their products, you can enter a challenge by using some online freebie images so go check it out and enter, enter, enter! http://www.waltzingmousestamps.com
