Victorian Cone with Thanksgiving Recipes

Hello My dear stamper friends:

Here is an Idea for Thanksgiving...
a Victorian cone or "Tussie Mussie"  to give away to your family or friends with some of your favorite recipes from that special day!

This project was made using "Petaloo's" flowers and trims and some papers from "Authentique",  as part of my DT assignments...

You can place this cone behind each chair hanging from a pretty ribbon, or place at each guest place setting or give away at the end along with some leftovers!!!

Here are the supplies: Petaloo Flowers, embellishments and some "Authentique" papers"

for the recipe rolls:
I took the top part of these pre-scored stack of cards, made a ring, embellish it with some flowers and insert on them the rolled recipe paper

Note: a "Tussie Mussie": is a small bouquet of fragrant herbs and flowers. In the 1700's they became popular and during this time, elegant ladies carried them to mask the odors around them. And they were often worn as well on the lapel. During the Victorian period, Tussie Mussies placed inside a doily were designed to share a message usually between lovers.
Today, when someone refers to a "tussie mussie", they are talking about the small cone-shaped metal vase used to hold a small bouquet specially worn by brides or displayed as a centerpiece in a reception

Remember to come back on Thursday to check who is the winner for my "Throwback Thursday" challenge ....
