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"
step by step...
step 1: take a 6 x6 paper from the "Autentique block of 6x6 papers".
place strong adhesive tape on 2 sides
ruffle the gold crepe paper and place along the tape as shown
step 2: tape gold string loop to hang from it on top and on bottom a gold string with some jingle bells
step 3: cover this with a 6x6 sheet of paper, add a punched trim along the sides
step 4: turn over and stitch gold string through the lace crochet trim and glue on 2 edges...
step 5: punch holes on opposite sides, with a needle and thread the ribbon
step 6: hold cone close with a clip and thread
step 7: finish with a knot at the end
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
the front tag
here it is another idea..you can replace those scrolls with recipes by a pretty fall arrangement, made with some pine cones, cinnamon sticks, feathers, Petaloo's Victorian tags and embellishments...

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
