that is the challenge theme chosen by Glenda for the next 2 weeks at
we would love to see any card or project for the special lady in your life.

For a little inspiration I have made a gift for my mum, I wanted to make a Tussie Mussie but while trawling through Pinterest I found a Gift Cone template by Lori Stanton.  I printed it off and created this
I have taken several pictures at different angles.  

I used Sherri Baldy image 741 Patchwork Patti, I coloured her with Graph It Markers and Copics then cut her out and adhered her to a stick.  I used Dovecraft's Sweet Paris paper collection to decorate then added 2 different types of lace, pink organza ribbon, string of pearls, sentiment plus one stamped sentiment in a frame which was also adhered to a stick, I filled the cone with pink tissue paper then topped it with flowers, the outer cone I added different sorts of flowers. Finally because the cone has a point I added some twine at the rear so it could be hung on the wall but I thought it would be nice to stand it in a mini crystal vase, I have had a set of 2 for many years just doing nothing, using them this way they are finally filled with lots of love.
I thought that mum would be able to stand this on her mantelpiece so she could see it everyday for, hopefully, years to come.
I would like to enter my project into the following challenges
I want to send you all a warm heartfelt THANK YOU for your response to my last posting I was over the moon to have received so many wonderful comments, thank you.

Judy Corner said...

Hi Lorraine,

Thanks for your lovely comments onmy Blog. These really made my day when I logged on just now. I am so pleased you were inspired by my Tussie Mussie. I still have another four to post on my Blog yet! I went a bid mad making them! I have found a Tutorial for you here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NJAMDe8fefc
This may help. I found two methods, one by starting with a square of paper (I stated with 8 inch square) and the other one was to start with a large circle cut in half.

I just love your gift cone! Fabulous! Judy x

Davi said...
