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!

Beautiful Birthday Shaker Card

Hello and welcome to my contribution to the  SCRAPBOOK ADHESIVES and HERO ARTS BLOG HOP

For my project, I have chosen to make this cute shaker birthday card!


Before we get started on the detail, here is a list of supplies that I've used: From Scrapbook Adhesives: Keepsakes Envelope Mix (I used 4" X 3.5") Extreme Double-Sided Tape 1/4 in, Dual Tip Glue Pen, Crafty Foam Tape Black and the E-Z Runner Grand Refillable Dispenser with E-Z Runner Grand Permanent Dots Refill.  From Hero Arts: Dress Up Stamp and Cut and Kelly's Flags Stamp & Cut
To begin, I added a few star sequins directly to the sticky part of the Keepsake Envelope.
Next I sprinkled some round sequins inside of the pocket.
I used the Extreme Double-Sided Tape 1/4" to close up the pocket.
I cut a piece of patterned paper the same size as the pocket and mounted it to the sticky back of the pocket.  
After die-cutting the dress bottom from patterned paper, it was pleated along the score lines and then…
