My first Tussie Mussie

Hello my dears,  I've been working on this project for a few days now, but I've been waiting for a few items to finish it off and they came today.  

I'd better tell you that this post is a bit photo heavy.  I can't think of any other way to show you the different angles and size of my first ever (definitely not the last) Tussie Mussie

From This 

To This 

This is quite a large Tussie Mussie as you can see by the 12" ruler
A multitude of embellishments, dies, bling, lace, fran-tage, stampin etc etc has been used to decorate it.  I'm not going to go into every tiny bit used !! we would be here all day!  lol  I'll pop a list of items used at the bottom of my post for you.

I'm going to be filling this with lots of little Christmas surprises for the recipient. She can then hang it up as a Christmas decoration if she wants

If you want to have a go at making one of these then just scoot over to Youtube and type in Tussie Mussie tutorial.  there are tons. I took my lead from Roseanne on how to create the basic shape.

I hope you enjoyed visiting and the many pictures didn't take up too much of your time.  I promise not to take so many the next time.

In the meantime I wish you all wonderful crafty day
