I hope you all had a wonderful Easter Holiday. I tried to get this post out sooner but I ran out of time. And for Easter Sunday I took the day off with no crafting or blogging or facebook. I know I'm a little late but I wanted to wish you all a Happy Easter with all your family and friends no matter what you are doing or what you did.
This year my daughter had us over to her house for Easter, which was a treat cause I usually host all the holidays but now I think that torch is being handed over. lol I think that is how that goes. Right?
Well for this wonderful holiday I made a Tussie Mussie, my very first time doing this project and I have to say I enjoyed it. I received the idea from fattypaddyscrapper on youtube, here is the link - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_GNkbwFs59Q
I have been chiming into a facebook group Scrapbookers of Country Crafts and that's how I came upon learning how to make a Tussie Mussie. Since I've not done one before I thought it would be fun and I am so glad I did cause they are just so fun. You can really use anything to you want to decorate them and set anything inside of them. (flowers, candy, a small gift)
For my Tussie Mussie I used some paper that I've had in my stash for over 10 years, lol Ummm, anyone else have papers that old in their stash??? I bought it from Oriental Trading but I don't remember the name of the paper. I also used some plastic flower filler around the bottom to give some greenery. I used hot glue to stick everything inside securely.
I made the little windmills from pre-cute triangles.
Also used liquid pearls on the bunny ears, nose and on the Easter Eggs.
Most all supplies were from my stash
Paper - Oriental Trading - Easter paper
Accessories - pink ribbon, white and white flower ribbon and other ribbons from stash; Liquid pearls - petal pink, yellow, baby blue on eggs, chick and bunny; crystal effects on eyes, beak of bunny and chick; used Stickles on belly of bunny.
How I made the windmills -
windmills are made from Lillibet - mini bunting pieces (folded in half and brad is stick through the middle) I hot glued the decorative straws to the back of the windmill.
