A Tussie Mussie Tutorial with Ana!
A Tussie Mussie is traditionally a floral bouquet, but today a Tussie Mussie is a quick and easy paper craft! Once completed you can use it as a gift container, to hold flowers, or even as a decorative piece.
Here's how it's done:
First pick your base paper, then draw a half circle type of line from one end to the other and cut.

Then, fold your paper into a cone shape and adhere it using hot glue or other strong adhesive.
If your cone doesn't come together perfectly at the top, trim the excess off as needed.

Once your cone is shaped you can decorate it any way you would like.
I add the pom-pom ribbon around the edge.

I then cut another piece of paper and punched out a border.

I added some flowers by cutting them out of the patterned paper and using dimensional adhesive to lift them up.

Once complete, just add your ribbon to hang it. You might want to experiment with the placement of your ribbon before committing to the final placement to ensure your Tussie will hang how you'd like it to. I kept putting it in the wrong place.

Here's the finished project:

I can't see what you do with it! Go get crafty and post your picture back here!!!
