For me this month's challenge is also something I have never tried before, tussie mussie making. A tussie mussie is a cone shaped holder for small posies or gifts, popular in Victorian time and often worn as a kind of broach... albeit a rather large one ;)
I decided to cover mine in flowers and pop choccies inside.
Where are the choccies you say.... they were very yummy!!
I used Tim Holtz tattered acorn die, an old rolled rose die and just did that thingy where you cut out a circle, then cut a spiral around and roll it up to make my flowers.
I may have gotten a little carried away with the flowers but they were so much bloomin fun to make and I couldn't bring myself to leave any out.
I used my butterfly palm punch, some pearls and got creative with some wire to make the handle, leaves and some more flowers.
I'll be honest and admit I groaned a little when I saw the challenge theme, I had no idea what a tussie mussie was. I can totally admit to also having had a blast making it. The girls over at Eclecticellapu have made some gorgeous pieces so do pop over for a look, even better if you join in the fun.
