CREAlies GD project 3


This is a Tussie Mussie that I have made for my third project as a CREAlies blog guest designer. I had so much fun making this vintage style cone. Does it look hard to make? maybe, but it was simple although a bit time consuming.
I made a cone shape using an "8x8" sheet of thick designer paper. I put a polystyrene ball inside the cone and pinned in another half of a cone on top of that using cocktail sticks. Next, two square doilies were glued around the edges at angles to suit and another inside the top of the cone. From there I just went around the cone adding different old bits of trims and lace and pearls. I die cut and layered my CREAlies flowers adding ink to some of the petals which I glued to the ball. Next I added a length of feathered Boa around the top edge just under the flowers and some wired pearls. A few crystal stick pins gave me a bit more dimension on top. To finish of I added two small vintage pictures that I die cut with a CREAlies nesting die,  some butterflies, a tassle and ribbon to hang it with.

Here are the codes for the dies I used with links to them in the CREA shop.

 SKU CLNest04XXL        CLDB02         CLSetB02         CLCF 14       CLsetF02
