Blowing Kisses Tussie Mussie

Cone shapes can be turned into party hats, trees, tussie mussies and more!  
Today I have a Valentine’s Tussie Mussie using the sweet “Blowing Kisses” Collection by
ECHO PARK PAPER
www.echoparkpaper.com

I started with a 12x12 sheet of “Tribal Chevron” paper (side B) and a cone pattern 
that I found online.  There are many, many cone patterns available so just pick your
 favorite version!  Next, I traced the pattern onto the paper, cut out and assembled. 


To the opening of the cone, I added a trim of fringe that I made with white crepe
 paper streamer. ..it’s easy to make!  Cut three 1 yard lengths of the crepe paper 
streamer and stack them together.  Machine- stitch (straight stitch) down the center
 of the stack.  Fold along the stitching and place back onto the sewing machine 
with the stitching to the right of the needle.  Sew another straight stitch about ¼” 
from the first stitching.  Cut slits into the streamer to create the fringe look.  
Glue around the inside-opening of the cone…I doubled mine to give it a nice, fluffy look.

The front of the tussie was decorated with a layering of beautiful die-cut papers and stickers!
A generous picot-edged ribbon bow was added to the bottom and the same ribbon 
was used for the hanger at the top.

Fill your cone with your favorite wrapped candies and have on display for family or friends who may stop by.  Make smaller cones for children’s parties or for co-workers. 
 The vibrant colors of “Blowing Kisses” will definitely create many oooh’s and ahhh’s!

♥A little about me♥  I'm currently designing for Doodlebug Design and Scrapbook Adhesives and have had the honor of serving on 20+ manufacturers or retailer  design teams over the years!  When I'm not working as a school administrative assistant, you can almost  always find me crafting cuteness for my Etsy Shop: Dot & Whimsy :) Aside from paper-crafting, I also enjoy making jewelry, cross-stitch, embroidery,  home decorating, reading and watching reality TV. But enough about little 'ole me...let's get on to the give-a-way!
With Valentine's Day right around the corner, I set out to find the perfect curation  of all things "red" and "love" in my stash.  The end result is this sweet ♥LOV…

A SN@P December Daily

Oh, December Daily, how do I love thee! Isn't this just the greatest idea, ever?  (scrapbooking wise, anyway) Welcome to my contribution to the  SIMPLE STORIES  DECEMBER DAILY BLOG HOP I'm so glad that you're joining us...I can't wait to hop around myself and see how the girls have decorated their SN@P Albums December Daily style :)
**You should be arriving here from Rebecca Keppel's Blog**
I have quite a few photos to share, so I'll leave most of them in a  smaller size.  Just click on each one to enlarge.
My vision for the album was to mix 'n match  Handmade Holiday, SN@P and Year.O.Graphy I wanted bright colors mixed in with more shabby-distressed look that Simple Stories is known for.    For the cover, I took a bright Turquoise Dot SN@P paper and a strip from Year.O.Graphy and stitched them together.  The title is a compilation of  sevearl SN@P sticker elements.
