I have so many projects to share..

with you this week. I still have plenty of older Cricut Blog projects to share, plus some beautiful projects from the Glue Arts blog, where we've paired up with Little Yellow Bicycle this week, and I have a project from the Pebbles blog to share as well.

 ok- since we're still in February, I think today, I'll share this beautiful Tussey Mussey I created for the Glue Arts blog. I used Little Yellow Bicycle's Cupcake Love line on it.

Tussey Mussey 
Designer: Kristen Swain

Glue Arts adhesives- Perma Tac and Glue Glide Pro, Extreme Adhesive Squares, Adhesive Squares, Mini Adhesive Squares, UCutIt foam
Papers/stickers/diecuts/chipboard shapes/doilies/pins- Little Yellow Bicycle
Buttons/twine-craft supply
heart ribbon- May Arts
Seam Binding- www.etsy.com/shop/scrapinkris <--- my etsy shop!!
lace- walmart

Tip- this sweet cone Tussey Mussey would be a fun way to give treats on valentine's day, or make it into a spring gift bag. Simply add candy, chocolates and small goodies to it, then hang on your family's chairs at the table. Decorations and gifts all in one!
Tussey Mussey Instructions

1. Wrap cone using diecut paper, then adhere with Extreme Adhesive Squares.
2. Punch holes in each side of top of cone, then tie on ribbon.
3. Punch out shapes and adhere together with UCutIt foam.
4. Adhere shapes to cone using Extreme Adhesive Squares.
5. To make doily roses, cut out excess paper from hearts, cutting in half as well. 
6. Roll roses from inside out, I use a quilling tool to keep from crushing the delicate lace. Adhere together with mini adhesive squares.
7. Attach to cone using Adhesive Squares.
8. Finish design with crinkled seam ribbon, heart buttons, twine, chipboard cupcake, pearl, and pins, tuck in bit of lace using Adhesive Squares to adhere lace to cone.
9.Finish bottom of cone with bit of lace wrapped around and adhered with Adhesive Squares, adding on chipboard heart with the adhesive squares as well.

Come back tomorrow for another pretty project!!
